Welcome to Connecticut River Coastal Conservation District
soil and water conservation since 1946

The Connecticut River Coastal Conservation District is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote the sound use and management of natural resources in our 26-town area.

The District provides technical assistance and education in:

  • soil and water conservation
  • erosion and sedimentation control
  • stormwater management
  • watershed protection

Our programs and services are provided to:

  • municipal staff and land use commissioners
  • private residents
  • agricultural producers
  • the public
  • the development community

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.

Many thanks to everyone who supported the District by buying plants at our 29th annual native plant sale fundraiser. We are very grateful to have been able to hold our plant sale again this year, and that there was so much interest in buying plants after we had to take the year off last year. The sale turned out to be our biggest and most successful ever. We’re looking forward to our 30th sale next year!
