Be the voice of Kittacuck, the Blackstone River.
The Blackstone River is located in the traditional, ancestral, unceded territory of the Narragansett, Nipmuc, Pokanoket and the Wampanoag Tribes. Kittacuck is the original Nipmuc name for the Blackstone River, which means “great tidal river.” Indigenous communities have had a deep relationship with the river for millennia.
This community event, led by Friends of the Blackstone, the Narragansett Indian Tribe and the Hassanamisco Band of Nipmuc aims to show support for fish passage over the lower four dams to bring migratory fish back to the Kittacuck River (the Blackstone River).
Join the parade to support fish migration on the Kittacuck River, Sunday, May 21.
We have many river and watershed programs and educational opportunities. In the past, we have helped individuals meet their court-ordered community service requirements as well as helped students complete their 15 hours of community service to help satisfy their graduation requirements. Students and individuals have fun while completing their requirements and they learn about the river and the environment at the same time. We hope the positive experience stays with them.
Contact us at BRWCFOB@gmail.com or complete our Project Registration form. Volunteers are always appreciated. Many hands make light work.
