Class participants will be introduced to the many cultural, historical, and natural resources of the John H. Chafee Blackstone River National Heritage Corridor, officially established as a permanent National Park in 2015. We will visit several locations along the Blackstone River and within the National Heritage Corridor located between Worcester and Providence, Rhode Island such as: Slater Mill in Pawtucket; Kelley House and Transportation Museum in Lincoln, RI; Museum of Work and Culture in Woonsocket; River Bend Farm at the Blackstone River and Canal Heritage State Park; the newly established Blackstone Visitor Center in Whitinsville; and the headwaters, lakes, ponds and streams that come together to form the Blackstone River in the City of Worcester.
We will travel by van and carpools for three sessions, and by bus for two sessions. Cost of transportation is $50.00 per person. There are admission fees to two sites so an additional $10 will be needed per person. Checks for $60.00 may be made payable to Mass Audubon and either mailed ahead of time or brought to the first day of class.
