    About Us

    The Woonasquatucket River watershed is home to more than 25 percent of Rhode Islanders and thousands of wildlife species. The Woonasquatucket River starts in North Smithfield and Glocester, and then flows south through Smithfield, Johnston, North Providence, and Providence. At Waterplace Park in downtown Providence, the Woonasquatucket meets the Moshassuck River, forming the Providence River
    and joining upper Narragansett Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.

    The Woonasquatucket River Watershed Council (WRWC) sparks economic development through our work restoring the Woonasquatucket River and communities around it, and by enhancing, extending and bringing people to the Woonasquatucket River Greenway. The WRWC is a successful model of community revitalization that helps people discover this local American Heritage River and its natural resources, channeling life and economic development into neighborhoods.
