CORNWALL BRIDGE — Registration is open for Celebrate Our Watershed with the Housatonic Valley Association, a free event that helps protect waterways and lands across the nearly 2,000 square mile Housatonic River Watershed.
From May 26 until July 4, HVA invites people of all ages to Celebrate Our Watershed by registering at www.hvatoday.org.
People can share photos and updates from their adventures and activities or attend an HVA-led event like a hike along the Appalachian Trail, river day for kids at Troutbeck or a hands-on session about HVA’s Follow the Forest initiative.
Participants can also join friendly competitions either solo or with a team such as most miles hiked or biked or best team photo and compete for exciting prizes like a guided river rafting trip for four, REI daypacks, Patagonia prize pack, Helinox Chair Ones and more.
“This event is all about bringing people together to explore and celebrate the Housatonic River Valley from the Berkshires and eastern New York through western Connecticut to Long Island Sound,” said Lynn Werner, HVA executive director. “By getting out there and sharing your experiences online, whether it’s paddling your favorite stream or hiking a local land trust trail or photographing wildlife, you’ll be raising awareness about the how special this area is and why we’re all working so hard to protect it.”
