Study Documents & Other Resources

By the end of 2018 the Study Committee will have developed a locally-based Wood-Pawcatuck Wild and Scenic Rivers Stewardship Plan and a Study Report that describes the eligibility and suitability of a Partnership Wild and Scenic River designation for the Beaver, Chipuxet, Green Falls, Queen/Usquepaugh, Pawcatuck, Shunock, and Wood Rivers.  Reports, documents, meeting agendas and minutes, and various presentations given by or to the Wood-Pawcatuck Wild and Scenic Rivers Study Committee are posted for review.

The Wood-Pawcatuck Wild and Scenic Rivers Study is being conducted in cooperation with the National Parks Service and the Wood-Pawcatuck Watershed Association (WPWA).  WPWA is a non-profit, conservation organization that is the RI State designated Watershed Council to advocate for the Wood-Pawcatuck Watershed.  For more information about WPWA visit the WPWA website.
