Water chestnut is an invasive plant that wreaks havoc on native plant and animal life, chokes out waterways and interferes with recreation. Infestations have been reported in all four states within the CT River watershed - NH, VT, MA & CT. Enjoy a beautiful day on the water pulling water chestnut and helping to preserve the habitat of this vulnerable waterway. This project was made possible through our cooperation with the Connecticut River Conservancy.
