Canoe the Nemasket

Hey - shut off your computer and get out on the Nemasket River - or the Taunton or another one of its tribs - while this weather holds! More than 30 lucky souls spent a morning on the Nemasket today - 18 canoes and kayaks - and so, so enjoyed the clear water, clear sky (!), good company and good food! See photos at the Taunton & Tribs flickr pool - yes, shameless promotion - but far far better is to get out there and experience it for yourself!!

Click on the flickr badge in the lower right column... and don't miss this trip next year!! Bookmark TRWA's home page and remember this trip next year - it's an annual event co-sponsored by TRWA and the Mass Archeological Society!

Experienced Our Programs? Tell Us What You Think!

Our Fall Programs are rolling along throughout the watershed! Next events include the October 4th canoe/kayak trip of archeological sites along the Nemasket River... a day long training October 6th to help you navigate the sometimes tricky waters of coalitions and parnterships... an evening program October 15th on the many options for property owners interested in conservation... and two nature walks at the Burrage Pond Wildlife Management Area!

If you've already participated in one or more of our events, please take a few moments to tell us your opinion! We have an online survey up at our home page - you can report back after each event. The last section asks for your feedback on our winter and spring ideas!

Hope to see you soon! And check out the Flickr pool which includes photos shared by camera buffs taken all over the Taunton River Watershed!
