HooRWA is a  citizens’ group that looks after the river.  We are dedicated to the restoration, conservation and enjoyment of the Hoosic River and its watershed, through education, research and advocacy. We envision a watershed that is ecologically sound and adds to the quality of life of its residents.

HooRWA’s event season closes on November 12 in a co-sponsored hike in Charlemont MA when noted forest old-growth expert Bob Leverett will guide a tour at the epicenter of Massachusetts old growth trees.  Come to the Mohawk Trail State Forest headquarters off Rte 2 in Charlemont at 10 a.m.  See the events calendar for more info.

Thank you to the volunteers, Board Members, the Town of Williamstown Highway Department and many of the incoming Williams College freshman class who helped HooRWA plant saplings and shrubs along the swale off of route 2 in the former Spruces Park.  Over 800 plants are in the ground, protected, mulched and watered.


Next year’s Hoosic River Ride will be on August 12th!     Save the date!
