Join the Indian Head River Coalition (a partnership between the NSRWA, Wildlands Trust, Towns of Hanover, Pembroke, Hanson, and Plymouth County) as we celebrate this amazing river and its surrounding land. Take part in a guided hike, or kayak paddle, or BOTH! Schedule and registration pages are listed below.

Embark on a land or water adventure as we explore a unique and diverse habitat steeped in local history. Amazing flora and fauna, freshwater tidal marsh, wild rice, and migratory herring are all some of what can be found in and around the Indian Head River. Discover why the IHR Coalition has worked to preserve and protect this gem of the South Shore.
