Berkshire Clean, Cold, and Connected Partnership

The Berkshire Cold, Clean, Connected Partnership is a collaboration with environmental organizations Housatonic Valley Association, Hoosic River Watershed Association, Farmington River Watershed Organizations, and Berkshire Environmental Action Team with the goal of catalyzing ecological restoration projects in Berkshire Rivers and Streams that protect cold-water fisheries, remove barriers to aquatic connectivity, and enhance clean, healthy rivers throughout Berkshire County.

The partnership envisions a region that is ecologically resilient to climate change and a community that is interconnected with the health and well being of our watersheds. It aims to increasing the pace and scale of ecological restoration in The Berkshires by building the capacity of local municipalities and partner organizations to collaboratively restore degraded aquatic ecosystems and increase climate resiliency.
