Central Connecticut River Valley Institute, Inc
The Central Connecticut River Valley Institute ("CCRVI"), a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, exists to create educational programs and innovative social, cultural, and economic institutions which encourage people to experience the physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual benefits of living in deep connection with the natural world, with themselves, and with each other.
CCRVI has a "bioregional" orientation. Ultimately our focus will be primarily in the central portion of the Connecticut River Valley watershed which is the location of what is known as the "transitional forest." This forest is "transitional" between the northern boreal forest and the mid-Atlantic forest. Our Bioregion is very roughly comprised of the following counties: Cheshire and Sullivan in New Hampshire, Franklin, Hampshire, and Hampden in Massachusetts, and Windham and Windsor in Vermont.
At this time, however, CCRVI is only working in Massachusetts. We have no programs in New Hampshire or Vermont.
