    Our mission is to:

  • Increase awareness and appreciation of the rivers of the Chicopee basin

  • Advocate and encourage wise use of the river and its adjoining lands

  • Actively participate in long range planning for the river and land along its banks through the support of land owners, various government agencies, public and private organizations

  • Promote restoration and conservation of the river's ecosystems and wildlife habitats

  • Encourage participation in the Council by holding regular meetings and sponsoring activities related to the river.
