Clean Up the White on 9/11

We invite you to help us Clean Up the White on Saturday, September 11, 2021!

To wrap-up the recreation season, the WRP is coordinating a river cleanup event in partnership with Vermont River Cleanup Month and Source to Sea. Our goal is to work with volunteers to remove as much trash from the White River and White River Water Trail access sites as possible.

How to Get Involved

Interested in helping us Clean Up the White? You have two options:

Option 1: Anytime on or before September 11: Pick-up trash by the river (visit our Water Trail sites map to find a site near you); then drop-off trash at the Royalton Academy Building on Saturday, September 11 between 10am and noon.

Option 2: Saturday, September 11 from 10am-noon: Swing by the Royalton Academy Building to sign a waiver and grab some trash bags; head to the river to collect trash; then return by noon to drop-off the trash.

NOTE: We’re asking all participants to practice social distancing at the event and to sign a waiver. Email christian[at] to receive a copy of the event waiver to print/sign in advance and drop-off with your trash. 

Celebrate 25 years with us!

To say THANK YOU, we will provide 25th Anniversary “Volunteer” t-shirts to the first 100 volunteers!

And we invite you to help us celebrate by sharing your river cleanup photos: take a picture of the trash you collect or you/your group in action and share it using the hashtag #CelebrateWRP25.


Please contact us with questions: christian[at] We look forward to hearing from you!
