Connect the Connecticut is a partnership effort to create a landscape conservation design for the Connecticut River watershed that provides a roadmap for identifying the best starting places for conservation — areas that partners agree should be priorities in order to ensure that important species, habitats, and natural processes will be sustained into the future, even in the face of climate and land-use change.Using an innovative modeling approach developed by the Designing Sustainable Landscapes (DSL) project at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and the best available regional science from the North Atlantic Landscape Conservation Cooperative (North Atlantic LCC), The Nature Conservancy (TNC), and the U.S....
Completed wetland and watershed restorations of irrigation reuse (or wetland concentration) pits in the Rainwater Basin Wetland Complex. The inventory is updated annually from project and management tracking database records of watershed or wetland restorations by Rainwater Basin Joint Venture conservation partners. Irrigation reuse pits are remnant structures associated with gravity irrigation. Center pivot irrigation has largely replaced gravity irrigation in the region but, the irrigation reuse pits that remain in the watersheds of Rainwater Basin wetlands intercept rainfall that would otherwise runoff to the wetland. Concentration pits are structurally similar to irrigation reuse pits but were constructed within...
