WILD & SCENIC FARMINGTON RIVER
25 years ago, in 1994, the 14-mile segment of the West Branch Farmington River from Hartland to the Canton/New Hartford line received its designation!
This year is turning into a great year for the Farmington River. As we celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Upper Farmington River becoming a Wild & Scenic River - we have another victory - 1.1 miles in Canton were designated Wild & Scenic making the Upper Farmington River designated area a total of 15.1 miles. Learn more about Wild & Scenic here.
