Blackstone Parks Conservancy

One of our signature annual events, Moonrise on the Seekonk, originally planned for September 14th, has been rescheduled for Monday, November 11th (Veterans Day) at 4:00pm, to comply with the Rhode Island Health Department’s recent recommendations for protection against the EEE virus include minimizing exposure at dusk. By mid-November we expect all mosquitos and the EEE threat to have been eliminated by overnight frost.

Our other mid-September event, RiverRide on the Seekonk will go ahead on Sunday, September 15th.  There will be three boat rides, departing at 11am, 11:50 and 12:40pm – all safely outside the times when extra precautions are recommended.  Due to high demand, and we are presently only taking waiting list requests, only for the 11:50 and 12:40 rides.

In light of RiverRide‘s popularity, we are pleased to inform you that we are currently planning a second RiverRide, for Sunday, October 20th. Reservations will start on Monday, September 23rd.
