Housatonic Valley Association

The Housatonic Valley Association (HVA) brings together a wide range of people and organizations that are deeply concerned about the resources and environmental quality of the Housatonic River Valley. Together, we protect land and water throughout the entire 2,000-square-mile, tri-state Housatonic Watershed.

HVA, a tri-state nonprofit citizen’s environmental group, works to conserve the natural character and environmental health of its communities by protecting and restoring the land and waters of the 2,000-square-mile Housatonic watershed from its source in the Pittsfield, Massachusetts area to Long Island Sound for this and future generations.

Our common-sense solutions balance important economic and environmental needs allowing for smart growth that preserves open space, wetland habitats and scenic vistas, and protects drinking water. 

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.
