Blue Hill Adventure & Quarry Museum's Canoe Program receives praise from CNN Hero Chad Pregracke:
“What you guys are doing is great. If there were more people doing what the Neponset River Cleanup is doing, the world would be a better place. Cleaning our rivers is very important, people need clean water. I hope more people will follow in the example you lead. Keep up the great work!” ........
