NATURE & HERITAGE TOURS – Sundays at 1 and 2 PM

On these tours you will hear stories of the workers, residents and early settlers of the Blackstone River Valley and what it took to make our region what it is today. As the 45-minute tours wind along the waters and thick foliaged riverbanks you may get a chance to see the great blue heron, hawks, deer, turtles, or even the returning Bald Eagle, that live along our renewed waterways.
