Hello Worcester Paddling Meetup Group,
We're holding a pre-race strainer removal and river clean up on the Blackstone River this Sunday May 6th at 10 a.m. We're meeting at Riverbend Farm in the Blackstone Heritage State Park, 287 Oak St. Uxbridge. I think we have enough people with chain saws and wet suits so bring work gloves and pruning shears if you want to help out or just come along for the ride. The weather should be good and there's now plenty of water in the river.
The canoe race will be held on May 19th. The proceeds from the race support the Blackstone River Watershed Association. Attached is the race registration form and a picture of a Bald Eagle that I saw on the Blackstone last Saturday.
Please e-mail me if you want more information.
