Our Purpose

Our purpose is to provide support for our local waterways the  Quinobequin AKA Charles River has always been sacred to natives and enjoyed by so many today. Certain areas are in dire need of cleansing. We remove trash, water chestnuts and anything else we find that could harm our sacred waters. We take a team of volunteers young and old on nature walks with bags where we collect the trash and debris on the side of the river. We also kayak the river to collect water chestnuts. We get out twice a month for the nature walks and twice a month for the kayak during the season. We also hold workshops to educate our con our mmunity osacred waterways and the importance of clean water.
