|The Connecticut River Joint Commissions (CRJC) serves as the primary network fostering collaborative planning efforts for the Upper Connecticut River. Created in the late 1980s by Vermont and New Hampshire, these advisory commissions advocate for the river while ensuring public involvement in decisions which affect the valley. The CRJC’s recently updated Connecticut River Recreation Management Plan, based on discussions by the CRJC’s five local river subcommittees, presents a summary of the river’s recreation-related issues.|
The CRJC has been active in facilitating both access improvement and ecological restoration projects along the waterway. They also post maps and river descriptions on their website.
