Join us for a free project tour – from 2015 – 2016 the WRP worked with the Green Mountain National Forest and other partners to restore 1.5 miles of the West Branch of the White River in Rochester, using large wood structures to improve in-stream and riparian habitat damaged after Tropical Storm Irene. This innovative project is the first of its kind on the east coast.
The tour will start at the CCC Camp parking area in Rochester (2924 Brandon Mountain Road); dress to walk through fields and along the river. An optional picnic fundraiser will follow the tour at 4pm; suggested donations are $20 per individual or $35 per couple/family.
The July 9 event is the third of five Second Sunday Events sponsored by the WRP. Learn more here!
Join us for a paddle trip between 2 new river access sites along the White River. We’ll start at the new Gilman River Access in Royalton (124 Gilman Road) and end at the new Broad Brook Access in Sharon (1106 River Road). Bring your own boat, paddles, and life jackets; the WRP will provide light snacks.
