The Connecticut River watershed is a public trust resource that
invites dedicated people and integrated solutions to come together.

Our Values


We know that we are at our best when engaging with, and learning from, a diverse range of individuals and communities. We strive to cultivate diversity by seeking, welcoming, and valuing all perspectives, voices, styles, and identities, with special attention to the structural power dynamics that have disenfranchised certain peoples and communities.


By listening, learning, and developing relationships, we build partnerships at all levels, creating opportunities and resources throughout the watershed and with the communities who sustain and are sustained by our rivers.


Achieving our goals is a long-term endeavor requiring a healthy organization, meaningful programs, and a spirit of persistence. We face opportunities and challenges with optimism and creativity.


We embrace our shared responsibility for the watershed and all that lives in it. We work to hold ourselves and others accountable to reduce and repair environmental harm.
