Introducing The Friends of the Passaic River, Incorporated 1997. We promote ecological and recreational uses and good conservation practices for the River. We have a thorough understanding that in order to revise such a natural resource it will take a well-thought out plan. Despite the infamous pollution, and the rank of top ten as one of America’s worst Rivers, there are numerous leisure activities that this community bravely undertakes. They include boating, canoeing, kayaking, crewing, and fishing. Our objective is to be instrumental in finding the best approach on how to gain a better appreciation by Governmental Agencies for the planning of our River and to help our coastal community grow in ways that benefit the economy, public health and the environment.
