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:

  • 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.

2022 Plant Sale News!! We are very happy to announce that our 30th Annual Native Plant & Plug Sale will take place April 29-30 at the Chester Fairgrounds. We are busy getting our online store and brochure ready, and all should be finalized early next month. The sale will be by pre-order only again, so there will be no extra plants available on the sale days. This year we are once again offering a large selection of shrubs, ground covers, edibles, evergreen trees, flowering perennials, ferns, grasses and sedges. Check back soon for more information, or contact the office to be added to our mailing list. You can also subscribe to our email list here on our webpage. We look forward to seeing you at the sale!
