Charles River Community Groups


Welcome to our group! We are a cooperative of nonprofit organizations working together to better engage neighbors surrounding our banks of the Charles River.

These six non-profit organizations along the Charles River in South Natick have banded together to collaborate, share information, and resources. We hope that you will use this website to find new and interesting programs along the Route 16 corridor.

At Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary you’ll find beautiful walkways and native plants of New England. Natick Organic Farm is just that – a working farm which sells its wonderful produce and flowers. The Natick Historical Society is the place to learn about our community’s colorful past, located on the lower level of the Bacon Free Library. The Bacon Free Library, a “hidden gem” by the bend in the river, houses thousands of books and materials for the entertainment and enlightenment of all comers. The Eliot Church is a true community church with many programs for all ages. And, finally, the Gardens at Elm Bank, Massachusetts Horticultural Society’s education center. In just about 5 miles, one can find interesting, informative, interactive, and delicious fare. We have it all! Come explore–
