ABOUT US

    The Batten Kill Watershed Alliance is a nonprofit organization formed in 2001 that is dedicated to the good stewardship of the Batten Kill and all of its tributaries. We are working to fulfill this mission through outreach to all river stakeholders and through active river habitat restoration projects.

    The key to our approach is that we seek to mobilize the resources of private, municipal, state, and federal entities on behalf of the river system. Working with all of these partners we have completed many habitat restoration projects as listed on the project page.

    We have undertaken trout habitat restoration projects and investments in better river dynamics. We plant trees along stream and river banks, which is one of the best things for the watershed. We sponsor occasional public presentations on river-related topics. We send out an occasional newsletter, and distribute material related to good stewardship.  

    *** NOTE: Our annual meeting is Thursday, 11/15/18 at 7 pm in the upstairs meeting of the Arlington Town Hall on Route 7A. We will have a presentation about the Vermont Batten Kill trout fishery from Lee Simard, Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department biologist. Contact BKWA executive director Cynthia Browning for more information. ***

    And another note -- we are still working on this website, so please be patient and let us know about any quirks!
