The Mill River Greenway Initiative is urging all our members to join with our neighbors and partners in a bike ride on Friday, September 27th at 5:30 to celebrate two weeks of support to limit the effects of climate change. Let’s do it!
Here’s an amazing interactive map for the Mill Riverwalk from Paradise Pond to Old South Street. Check it out and send us your feedback at email@example.com
Thanks to the incredible work of Victoria Beckley and Jon Caris at the Spatial Analysis Laboratory at Smith College, we have an interactive map of the riverwalk from Paradise Pond to the corner of Old South Street and Conz in Northampton. This is a companion to the brochure, but allows us to display other features and links, such as Smith College’s Paradise Pond monitoring project. It also provides a more accurate location for the former Hoe Shop at the dam.
Please let us know what you think of it. You can find it here.
