The Batten Kill Watershed Alliance is comprised of dedicated individuals whose love for this unique watershed is based on the ecological, recreational, and practical values of the river system.

We hold regular Board Meetings, usually the first Thursday of the month at 7 pm. The location varies across the seasons. The meetings are public. Please contact executive director Cynthia Browning for more information. Our next meeting is actually the Annual Meeting, Thursday 11/15/18 at 7 pm at the Arlington Town Hall on Route 7A in Arlington, VT. See the Blog post!
