Quinobequin Intertribal Paddle

Join us along with Charles River Watershed Association on Saturday, June 29th for a leisurely midday paddle on one of the more beautiful stretches of the Quinobequin (Charles River)!

Along the way, you’ll hear from special guest Danielle Frank of the Hupa & Yurok tribes about their recent success undamming the Klamath River & the return of the Salmon. You’ll also hear about local efforts to undam the Charles River from members of the CRWA team, the sacred Taíno traditions of canoes from Dr. Darlene Flores, & reflections from Toodie Coombs of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe.
