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.
At HooRWA’s next event we are organizing a canoe/kayak trip on the Hoosic from Buskirk, NY to Johnsonville, NY on Friday, June 21st. We will meet at the First Congregational Church in Williamstown at 10 a.m. and travel by group to the Buskirk launch site. The launch point is located adjacent to the Buskirk covered bridge on Route 103. For more information, go to our calendar!
The Massachusetts Division of Ecological Resources has released a YouTube video on a dam removal project in Pittsfield Massachusetts. You can find a link on our Advocacy Section under Remediation or click below. HooRWA believes this project represents a good example of the typical ecological values of dam removal for unused (power generating) aging dams. Here is the link
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.
