Exploring Our Rivers: Get out there.
There are many ways to connect with a river--but few better than getting out on the water. At CRWC we think one of the best ways to protect the Connecticut River is by helping people enjoy it, close-up. When people get to know our rivers, they fall in love with them. That’s why we look for new opportunities to get folks out on our Great River, and try to bring them to you.
During the warm months our River Stewards like to get out on the water and enjoy the richness of the watershed. Sometimes we are able to share these experiences with CRWC members and the public by offering paddling trips. To do this we’ll sometimes team up with other knowledgeable groups and outdoor organizations to maximize resources and share in the fun. Click here for watershed paddling opportunities.
Connecticut River Boating Guide
In the spring of 2007 CRWC celebrated our newly-released, wholly-revised, Connecticut River Boating Guide, by John and Wendy Sinton and Elizabeth Farnsworth. It is the most up-to-date source for getting out on the river—for kayakers, boaters, swimmers, river buffs, fishermen, natural historians and those just interested in river towns and history. All profits from sales benefit the Watershed Council. Ongoing CRWC kayak and canoe trips continue to highlight this indispensible publication. To purchase the Connecticut River Boating Guide, click here.
