Parks & Trails
By definition, a watershed is composed not just of water, but of all the land that it flows over and under in order to get where it's going. Thanks to the hard work of many organizations including the ones listed below, the Still River Watershed offers opportunities to walk, hike, and enjoy greenways, open space and conserved lands. If you know of a group that's not listed here, go to our Contact page to let us know; we'd love to hear from you!
