The Collinsville Town Bridge is flying! The crane is lifting the historic, 160-foot, metal, one-lane Town Bridge off today for repairs and a new paint job. The bridge was fabricated in 1895 by Connecticut’s Berlin Iron Bridge Company. At the time there were only 300 automobiles in the country! The bridge is on the National Register of Historic Places. . . . #history #bridge #farmingtonriver #collinsville #frwa #nonprofit #watershed #visitconnecticut #historicplaces #townbridge #canton #beoutsidect #collinsvilletownbridge
A gorgeous Memorial Day weekend in New Hartford – getting ready for the Farmington River Coordinating Committee’s outdoor concert at 3pm! WildCat Creek. Bridge street, New Hartford. #livemusic #outdoorconcert #farmingtonriver #beoutside #wildandscenic #frcc
We taught 4th graders from Simsbury Squadron Line Elementary School about aquatic insects this morning! The kids waded in #SalmonBrook to observe, identify, and marvel at the life histories and ecology of insects and other creatures that inhabit flowing waters. Aquatic insects are indicators of water quality. Today was a fun, educational opportunity for the students but we are also involved in #RBV (Rapid Biomonitoring for Volunteer) Program. In this capacity we collect scientific information on the types, number, and diversity of aquatic macroinvertebrates living in tributaries the #FarmingtonRiver. Results help us and CT Department of Energy and Environmental Protection identify high quality streams and monitor water quality changes in the watershed. #frwa #nonprofit #stewardship #beriversmart #nature #beoutside #naturalconnecticut #rivers #waterquality #outdooreducation #getoutside #aquaticinsects #streams #explore #ctdeep #waterqualitymonitoring

Day 3: with help from Bristol Parks and Rec and ESPN volunteers, we got plants in, mulch down, and rock catch basins built! The FRWA team is feeling so proud and soon we will have the rain to test it out! Rain gardens are beautiful features that infiltrate runoff, reduce stormwater pollution, and reduce flooding and erosion issues all the while providing excellent habitat for birds, bees, and butterflies as they are filled with native plant species. @bristolctparksandrec @espn #frwa #nonprofit #stewardship #raingarden #conservation #beriversmart #planting #watershed #waterquality #beoutside #naturalconnecticut #nature #bristol #farmingtonriver #garden #volunteer #parksandrec
