The Connecticut River Watch Program, a citizen monitoring program for the Connecticut River and tributaries, is one of the District’s flagship programs.

The District receives financial support from municipal contributions, the State of Connecticut, an annual native plant sale, state, federal and private grants, and private contributions.
