Our mission is to preserve and protect the lands and waters of the Wood-Pawcatuck watershed for natural and human communities
Who We Are
Since our inception in 1983 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we have fostered a mission to promote and protect the integrity of the lands and waters of the Pawcatuck Watershed.
Membership is open to anyone who is interested in the protection of the Wood-Pawcatuck Watershed’s valuable natural resources.
The Wood-Pawcatuck Watershed encompasses a 300 square mile area of land in southern RI and southeastern CT.
The Pawcatuck Watershed offers unlimited recreational opportunities
57 miles of rivers, mostly flat-water paddling on the rivers; numerous streams in pristine forest for fishing native brook trout and stocked brown and rainbow trout; and five state management areas for hiking, biking, hunting, birding and natures studies.
