Woonasquatucket River Watershed Council Offers 2 April Hikes

The Woonasquatucket River Watershed Council (WRWC) is offering two spring hikes in the Greater Providence (RI) area. The hikes are part of the WRWC’s “Explore the Woonasquatucket” Recreation Series, which offers year-round tours of beautiful and historic sites throughout the Woonasquatucket River watershed, including paddle trips, hikes, and bike rides. Advanced registration through the WRWC website is required.
