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 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.
Our first outdoor event of the season will be a Nature Hike at the Hopkins Memorial Forest, Saturday, January 13, 2018.

Hoosic River Watershed Association Annual Meeting
Monday, January 29, 2018 at 7 p.m.
Community Hall—First Congregational Church Chapin Hall Drive, Williamstown MA
Our speakers will be Housatonic Valley Association Berkshires Director Dennis Regan and HooRWA Executive Director Steve McMahon, who will speak on the 2017 EPA funded project to sample and test river segments in both the Housatonic and Hoosic River Watersheds. The project was to evaluate select river segments with the goal having them reclassified as non-impaired for public use.
“Reflections on the River”, an exhibit of local artists work focused on the Hoosic River, is on display at the Milne Library in Williamstown, MA. For more information or to download a list of artworks, please visit the events page.
