The Charles River, with its pastoral meanderings in the upper watershed to its splendid views of Boston and Cambridge, is a great place to kayak or canoe. Read the recent Boston Globe article of a kayaker’s account of his paddle through the Charles River Lakes District.
CRWA’s Charles River Canoe and Kayak Guide is a must for anyone interested in exploring the Charles River. It’s packed with useful information including boats launches, paddling spots, and scenic opportunities along all 80 miles of the river. Read more about our Guide or purchase at the CRWA Store.
Congratulations to all the Charles River swimmers. The one-mile swim hosted by the Charles River Swimming Club on Saturday, June 1 was a great success.
This annual race is a testimony to improved water quality and to the work remaining to make the river consistently swimmable.
Charles River Watershed Association is partnering with Charles River Canoe & Kayak and CANOE (Citizens Alliance for NOxious weed Eradication) to remove invasive water chestnuts from the Newton and Waltham area of the Charles.
Volunteer hand pullers and a mechanical harvester will contain the water chestnuts and keep key channels open for recreation.
