Grab your paddles and get ready for a fantastic summer on the brook! In partnership with the Rhode Island Blueways Alliance and with grant funding from The Rhode Island Foundation the Buckeye Brook Coalition has produced its first official paddle maps. Buckeye Brook Coalition is one of 10 Rhode Island watershed organizations that are creating paddle maps as part of this project. Even if you are familiar with Buckeye Brook, you may be surprised to learn some new things about its historic and natural significance. Check back for other maps being produced in this series and always remember to wear lifejackets, sunscreen and take all other appropriate safety precautions!
