The Connecticut: New England’s Great River

The largest river in New England rises in a small beaver pond near the Canadian border and flows over 400 miles through four states, falling 2670 feet to the sea through America’s only watershed-based national fish and wildlife refuge. This program begins with an armchair tour of this great river in New Hampshire and Vermont, exploring its history and natural beauty through the seasons and among the communities that have sprung up along its banks. Much more than a travelogue, this program explores the many issues involved in managing the health of this major river, and how citizens from all walks of life have created a vision for its future.

 Adair Mulligan is an environmental biologist and natural resource planner. Currently Executive Director of the Hanover Conservancy, she served for 20 years as Conservation Director of the Connecticut River Joint Commissions, working with valley citizens to create the Connecticut River Management Plan. An avid writer, photographer, historian, and outdoorswoman, she has also contributed to a number of publications, including Proud to Live Here in the Connecticut River Valley of Vermont and New Hampshire and Where the Great River Rises, An Atlas of the Upper Connecticut River. Adair holds a master’s degree in Environmental Biology from Smith College.
