The WRWC was recently featured in the Valley Breeze Observer!

The Woonasquatucket River Watershed Council was granted approval by the Smithfield Town Council for use of the Leo Bouchard Conservation Center for the organization’s environmental education programming. The center will be used to provide educational and outdoor activities to students throughout the Watershed. Thanks to donations from the Annenberg Foundation and James M. Cox Foundation, the center will include things like indoor sports and outdoor classroom-style seating, a kayak and cone rack, and hands-on educational exhibits. WRWC Environmental Education Director Amanda Peavey expressed her excitement at bringing students up to the property for the upcoming school year: “We will be taking students on field trips to the center, where they can learn about the Woonasquatucket River, its habitats, and how to be environmental stewards in their own communities.”
