The Woonasquatucket River Watershed Council (WRWC) creates positive environmental, social and economic change by revitalizing the Woonasquatucket River, its Greenway and its communities. Your support spurs revitalization along the Woonasquatucket River, one of only 14 American Heritage Rivers in the nation. You help build new healthy transit and recreation paths, create parks, and clean our water for future generations. With more than 25 years of restoration and redevelopment experience, our small staff is smart with funding, stretching every dollar to maximize impact. By giving to Woonasquatucket River Watershed Council, you invest in the future of Rhode Island.

With your help, we will raise $450,000 this year to ensure we are funding our existing projects on the 7+ miles of the Woonasquatucket River Greenway. Due to the expiration of federal funding, support for maintenance and core expenses will be far less predictable. Your donations are the only reliable funding source for maintaining our transformative work and funding essential expenses. And your donations ensure that the Greenway remains a vital resource for everyone and everything within the Watershed and beyond, into Narragansett Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. We are grateful for each and every contribution, and we work hard to ensure that your dollars make a real impact on our community. Donors at every level make a huge difference and we are grateful for your support.
