Sure it is only a river, a river that has been on the SouthCoast since the dawn of time. Here, it is known as the Acushnet River, one of the world's best natural harbors, a river that hosted farmers, whalers, textile manufactueres, and others; and assisted them in finding their fortunes. But it also the home and the beginnings for the HANDS ACROSS the RIVER COALITION - a group that has learned the lessons that nature has taught, the insights a river can offer. It is a river that grabs one's heart, and teaches us all to strive for the protection of our environment, to heed the needs of nature, to reach out to the communities on the shores and pass on the message of environmental awareness.
