We work with many agencies and organizations that contribute to the well-being of the Connecticut River and its communities. The following links will help you know about and contact them.  It’s all about working together to get to where we want to go!

Here’s a terrific video about the river and the many different people, places, and organizations that make it special. I produced this video to put a spotlight on the professionals I worked with during my 2 year documentary photography project in the Connecticut River watershed.
