HooRWA is a citizens’ group that looks after the river. We are dedicated to the habitat 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.
Our next event is a volunteer river clean up day with members of the South Williamstown Community Association. The clean up is on Saturday, July 11 beginning at 1 p.m. If you’re able bodied and not afraid of slipping on wet stones, join us for a cleanup along the Green River. This is a project we’ve done for the last few years to address the debris washing into the river from a former town landfill located behind the Hart farm on New Ashford Road (Route 7). Park at the Hart Garage and cross the road to walk down the driveway at the Thaisz’s house, 340 New Ashford Road. You’ll need rubber boots and gloves and don’t forget to spray yourself with insect repellant. The Town will provide us with garbage bags and arrange for disposal.
HooRWA has published “Dispatches from the Beyond Place: Tales of the Hoosic River,” A copy can be found here on our website under the About Us tab and then under History.
