Rivers Alliance of Connecticut is the only statewide nonprofit dedicated to protecting and enhancing Connecticut's rivers, streams, and watersheds. We promote and support environmentally sound state policies, assist the state's many watershed and river groups, and educate the public about the importance of water conservation and aquatic habitats. We are a membership-based nonprofit corporation founded in 1992.

Rangeley Lake BoatRivers Alliance Sold a Boat! Thank you to all who supported Rivers Alliance at the Mystic Seaport Wooden Boat Show throughout the weekend June 27-29! Thank you as well to our Board of Directors and staff who kindly shared their time as we exhibited a beautiful, hand-crafted wooden Rangeley row boat. Most of all thank you to generous donor and longtime Rivers Alliance member Geoffrey Meissner who built the impressive boat and donated it to Rivers Alliance. The proceeds from the sale go directly to Rivers Alliance’s mission to protect and enhance Connecticut's waters and aquatic habitats. To see Geoff’s amazing work and his step by step process, check out these pictures: https://picasaweb.google.com/GeoffMeissner/Rangeley
