Looking to get involved? Here are our upcoming events, locations and times. Hope to see you on the river!
Volunteer at WRWA's Spring & Fall River Clean-Ups! Hundreds of volunteers have helped remove thousands of pounds of trash from the Westfield River over the years. WRWA continues to host annual clean ups around Earth Day in the spring and the CT River "Source to Sea" Clean-up in the fall. WRWA provides bags and coordinates roadside trash removal with local municipalities. See Facebook for more information
