The Connecticut River Paddlers' Trail is managed primarily by a variety of small nonprofits and town conservation commissions. A shared stewardship fund helps cover the costs associated with campsite maintenance, trail coordination, and the development of new sites.
Each year, funds donated by river enthusiasts like you are redistributed by our fiscal agent (the Vermont River Conservancy) to trail partners engaging in helping expand the trail and taking care of existing campsites and access points along the river. In this approach, we avoid the need to create a new nonprofit, minimizing overhead and maximizing impact.
Through your donation, you are supporting non-motorized recreation in the Connecticut River watershed. Together, you will join a group dedicated to creating world class paddling routes, with ample camping opportunities, well-maintained portages, and safe river access.
