Roger Williams Paddle
Jul 20 all-day

This Ten Mile River Watershed Council event begins in East Providence at Freedom Green on North Broadway, which is close to the Roger Williams Spring, Roger’s first choice of a homestead. We will travel down river to Omega Dam and the Paul Bettencourt fish passage. Here is our only portage on this trip down a steep incline into the Seekonk River. We will continue down the Seekonk River around India Point through the hurricane barrier into the Providence River, ending our paddle at Market Square.  From here we move to the Roger Williams National Memorial for a talk by one of the rangers and a bite to eat.  This paddle is free to members, non members are charged 20 dollars, to cover transportation and food costs.   The TMRWC does this paddle every other year and it is sure to sell out.
