Connecticut River Watershed Report
Conserving the Heart of New England
The Connecticut River drains almost one sixth of New England and a third of the land mass of the four states through which it flows. It encompasses a spectacular diversity of landscapes, each with a character that is both locally unique and consistent with our sense of New England as a whole. The connection between land and people is strong: forests and farms still dominate the landscape, wildlife abounds, and it is a multi-faceted tourist and recreation destination.
This new report released by The Trust for Public Land highlights the resources of the entire four-state Connecticut River watershed in a way that helps residents to see how their community fits into the larger landscape, and encourages state and federal officials to see the importance of helping communities and investing in land conservation. With beautiful images, compelling maps, and new data and analysis, this 64-page, four-color report is a valuable resource for professionals and citizens alike.
