Welcome to the SRWA

Shawsheen River
The SRWA is a non-profit, all volunteer organization with a mission to protect, restore, and enjoy the Shawsheen River and its watershed. We host a wide range of events all year round.

River Cleanups

We have literally removed thousands of tires from the river since March 2002 when we started counting. We continue to remove pallets, lumber, bottles, and other trash from the river.

Canoe Trips

We canoe 12 months of the year. If you are interested in canoeing the Shawsheen, please contact us to learn about our regular public paddles and other events. We can usually lend all necessary gear at no cost.


We hold monthly meetings to discuss current issues and upcoming events. Meetings are open to the general public.

Special Events

We regularly host special events open to the public. These include:
* Paddle and safety demos.
* Presentations on wildlife, such as coyotes, owls, and beaver.
* Events hosted for Scouts, school groups, companies, and other organizations.

Get outside, get involved, have fun!!!
