Three months after planting the Rain Garden at Page Park in Bristol, the pollinators are loving it! During our day of weeding we saw bees, moths, and monarch butterflies. The winterberries will provide food for birds. After the rain, the rain garden infiltrates the runoff from the roof, sidewalks and basketball court, and the rain barrel is full, reducing stormwater runoff. #raingardens #pollinators #beriversmart #nature #monarchbutterfly #farmingtonriver #beoutside #watershed #waterquality #rainbarrel #stewardship #conservation #noglassnotrash #frwa #nonprofit #rivers #summertime #pagepark #connecticut_igers #flowers @bristolctparksandrec @frwa

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
