Clean water for life!
HVA protects the natural character and environmental health of the entire Housatonic Watershed for this and future generations.
Who we are
HVA, a tri-state nonprofit citizen’s environmental group, works to conserve the natural character, environmental health and the economies of our region by protecting and restoring its land and waters… for today and for future generations.
Our common-sense solutions balance important economic and environmental needs allowing for smart growth that protects water quality and encourages open space, wetland habitats, recreation areas and scenic vistas.
HVA monitors water quality, adds sections to the Housatonic RiverBelt Greenway (linking preserved space along the Housatonic River with hiking and biking trails), and uses computer mapping to help towns measure the impact and benefits of land use and development.
In addition to its Cornwall Bridge office, HVA has offices in Stockbridge, Massachusetts and Wassaic, New York.
