Special thanks to our members and volunteers


To protect the natural character and environmental health of the entire Housatonic Watershed for this and future generations.

Trout Unlimited and HVA work with students
in Salmon Kill Arbor Day Planting Event

Local students will plant 400 native trees and shrubs and engage in other activities focused on watershed science, water quality, wildlife and art. The activities will take place following Earth Day (April 22nd) through Arbor Day (April 28th). Trout Unlimited and HVA, with help from community volunteers, will lead the onsite activities with students from Salisbury, Sharon and Falls Village Center Schools, Housatonic Valley Regional High School, Hotchkiss and Salisbury Boys School.

Support HVA during Give Local 2017 -- uniting donors, businesses, and organizations in giving back to our community. During the event, every dollar you donate is stretched with bonus funds provided by Connecticut Community Foundation and generous sponsors.


Into this ...  By donating your old vehicle to HVA.

You are a driving force behind HVA's environmental work! Now you have a great opportunity to support our mission and recycle your vehicle. We accept almost anything that is in one piece and towable from any location -- cars, trucks, motorcycles, RVs, trailers, boats, planes, ATVs, even farm equipment. Your donation will be picked up and is tax deductible.       Check it out!
