The Hoosic River Revival is sponsoring a community walk exploring the Hoosic River’s North Branch, in the area of Union and Canal Streets in North Adams. The walk will take place from 1:00-2:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 6, starting at the Canal Street parking lot across from HiLo/Parlor Cafe ( The walk is a rain or shine event.

The power and beauty of the Hoosic River brought Native Americans, early settlers, and our current residents to North Adams. The short walk will follow the route of the Hoosic River and will include a conversation about the river’s history, the flood chutes, the health of the river, and ideas for its revival.

The goal of the Hoosic River Revival is to reconnect our residents and our beautiful river by updating our 1950s flood control system with new engineering.  At the same time this new design will make the river an attribute for recreation, economic development, and community building.  

Please join us for a fun, family walk along the river!
