Cascading Waters can be found at 135 Olean Street on the eastern edge of Worcester's northwest parklands, the Cascades. The Cascades are 350 acres of park and conservation lands along the borders of Worcester, Paxton, and Holden, Massachusetts. Home to countless species of plants and animals, the Cascades are open to passive recreation year-round.

Clark goes hiking

Both yesterday (in the rain) and today (in much nicer weather), we've had groups from Clark University's Outing Club come through on a hike! Yesterday's group did a loop up through the meadow and today's left about a half hour ago.
(And here's a tip: if you're with a group and give us a heads up, not only can you have a genuine welcome from someone from GWLT, there might be cookies. It's worth doing.)

Yesterday we had a total of 0.51 inches of rain, with another 0.04 inches after midnight last night.
Thus, the stream today is up to 3.4 inches, with a good flow over the Cascades.
At 1 pm today, it's 29.09 inches and steady on the barometer.
We appear to need new batteries in the meter outside, so I'm going to declare that it's about 73 degrees and leave it at that!

Good to see so many of you at Canal Fest yesterday!

There was a rain date of next Saturday for CanalFest- how much rain does it take to canel that thing?

We assumed it would be postponed.

There's always next year, I guess.

It was very, very damp!
They postponed last year because of the hurricane, and I think they were sorry that they had.
