Teens in Nashua River Watershed Association’s Summer Eco-Adventures paddle near the new Fitch’s Bridge over the Nashua River in Groton.

You can explore the Nashua River from a new viewpoint on Sunday, September 22, from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. when the Nashua River Watershed Association sponsors a free guided hike along the Nashua from Groton Place to Fitch’s Bridge.

The hike will pass through two Groton Conservation Trust properties, Lawrence Woods and Taisey, and a town Conservation Commission tract, Farmers and Mechanics, to the new Fitch’s Bridge. The guides for this hike are NRWA’s Land Programs Director, Al Futterman, and Paul Funch of the Groton Trails Committee.  The hike will last 45 minutes in each direction for a total of an hour and a half.  It is free and open to the public; for the comfort of all, no dogs are allowed.  

The meeting place for the hike is the parking area at (Rt. 225) in Groton; a Google map and directions can be found on NRWA’s website, www.NashuaRiverWatershed.org (and below — Ed.).   Pre-registration is appreciated for planning purposes.  To pre-register or for more information, please contact Futtermanat (978) 448-0299, or email AlF@NashuaRiverWatershed.org.  The NRWA is a non-profit organization that provides natural resource protection and environmental education programs in 32 communities in north central Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire—communities connected by water.
