River Steward Program

The Upper Wild and Scenic Farmington River is a beautiful place, and we would like everyone who comes here to have an enjoyable visit. The river is popular with fishermen, boaters, tubers and picnicers. The River Steward Program was started with a goal to make the Farmington River a fun and safe place to recreate. Through outreach and education the stewards focus on promoting 'No Glass, No Trash' and 'Pack Out What You Pack In'. They are also a source of information about various regulations (i.e. fishing), invasive plants, and safety/ettiquette while on the water. If you see one of them dressed in their identifiable gray polos, stop to say 'hi' and why you love visiting the river!
