It’s time to paddle with a purpose — help us remove the invasive water chestnut from our waterways
Water chestnut is a harmful aquatic, invasive species, which is known to take over stretches of water. When left unchecked, water chestnut has the potential to decimate ecosystems and eliminate recreational opportunities.
Join us in Gill, MA, near Turners Falls on Saturdays listed in the form below at 9:30am for a 10am launch. Each paddler is required to register and consent to CRC’s liability waiver using the form below. Paddlers should bring the following:
