Norwalk River Watershed Association
Your tax-deductible membership will help NRWA continue vital projects that protect water quality and wildlife habitats and sponsor free programs, such as guided nature walks, riverbank cleanups, talks and presentations throughout the Norwalk River Valley.

NRWA is a private non-profit organization exempt from taxation under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The annual operating budget is funded almost entirely by membership contributions. Members receive NRWA’s newsletter “In the Mainstream,” which lists activities and updates members on pertinent problems, progress, projects, and programs within the watershed.
