If you enjoy spending some of your free time in Riverfront parks, we encourage you to become a Friend of the River. Your annual donation initiates your membership. As a member, you will receive Riverfront Recap, a printed newsletter that shares information about our activities, and will be invited to stewardship events, such as parks walking tours, hands-on activities highlighting Riverfront programs like Adventure or Rowing, author and conservationist David Morine’s visits, or informative talks about Connecticut River paintings in the Wadsworth Atheneum collection, or .
And you will know that you have supported what you most enjoy about the Riverfront and that your support allows others to enjoy the Riverfront, too.
