Casting A Look At The Conn. River

Print More

The Connecticut River takes its name from the Algonquin word for the "long tidal river." New England’s longest river stretches 407 miles from the Connecticut Lakes in northern New Hampshire to Long Island Sound in Connecticut.

Broadcasting from the banks of the Connecticut River at the Montshire Museum of Science in Norwich, Vermont, we look at the history, health, geology, energy generation and recreational opportunities of the body of water that forms the entire border between Vermont and New Hampshire.

Our panel of experts includes River Steward and State Representative David Deen, writer Nat Tripp, Rose Paul of The Nature Conservancy and Montshire Museum Executive Director David Goudy.
