Each year in August our committee invites the general public and our partners to join us on a River Walk.

At this time we showcase of current work and provide our work crew with an opportunity to explain how we construct the river structures.

Keeping the public informed is of vital importance to both our committee and all of our sponsors.

If you go to our Gallery section of our Web Page you will find several pictures from past River Walks.

He released several that day.

Perry Swan took this picture of the bridge on Ferguson’s Brook just before it enters the Waugh’s River. The snow is melting but not before ice has damaged pipes that lead to our Hatchery.

This is not uncommon but still it will mean a work crew will be busy in April.

In order to better understand how to enhance the quality of our watershed, our group takes into consideration many factors. One of those factors is the underlying geology of our stream’s bedrock.

Dr. Howard Donohoe retired geologist from NSNR is an authority on the subject. We requested his advice and you can find his Report to us on our Resources section at the top of our webpage.
