The Connecticut Watershed Conservation Network (CWC Network) is an environmental forum sponsored by Rivers Alliance of Connecticut. The Network brings together members of river and watershed groups, land trusts, conservation commissions, government agencies, and other stakeholders to identify ways we can improve our communication, share our organizational resources, and better coordinate our watershed protection efforts statewide.

The CWC Network welcomes all people and groups interested in watershed conservation in Connecticut. If you would like more information or wish to support us, please contact us at 860-361-9349 or e-mail to rivers@riversalliance.org. Services offered include e-mail news, two annual conferences, special workshops, and answers to your conservation questions.

Please consider joining our support organization, the Rivers Alliance of Connecticut. RA is a nonprofit, statewide river conservation coalition. RA's members are individuals, organizations, and corporations concerned with the health and protection of Connecticut's waters.
