Welcome to Eastern Connecticut Conservation District

The Eastern Connecticut Conservation District (ECCD) is a local not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping the towns and citizens of Eastern Connecticut with their conservation needs. The creation of the ECCD is a result of the reorganization of Connecticut’s eight county based soil and water Conservation Districts into five regional watershed areas: Northwest, Southwest, North Central, Connecticut River Coastal, and Eastern.
 
The service area of the ECCD encompasses thirty-six municipalities covering Windham and New London counties and part of Tolland County. Our service area includes the towns of:
Andover, Ashford, Bozrah, Brooklyn, Canterbury, Chaplin, Columbia, East Lyme, Eastford, Franklin, Griswold, Groton, Hampton, Killingly, Lebanon, Ledyard, Lisbon, Mansfield, Montville, New London, North Stonington, Norwich, Plainfield, Pomfret, Preston, Scotland, Sprague, Sterling, Stonington, Thompson, Union, Voluntown, Waterford, Windham and Woodstock.
