Upcoming events

Sunday, September 11: White River cleanup & Annual Meeting cookout

We invite you to join us on September 11 for our White River Cleanup & Annual Meeting Cookout – a gathering to remove end-of-season trash along the river and to thank our members and volunteers!

This FREE get-together combines two events on the same day – we invite everyone to attend one or both events:

WHITE RIVER CLEANUP: 10:00am – noon
This is our end-of-season river cleanup and we need volunteers to help remove trash from several sites. Dress to get dirty in long pants, long sleeves, and close-toed shoes. Meet us at the Royalton Academy Building to grab trash bags, then walk/drive to cleanup sites nearby. No RSVP necessary!

ANNUAL MEETING COOKOUT: noon – 2:00pm
To thank our members and volunteers, we’re hosting a cookout outside at the Royalton Academy Building. Enjoy local food cooked on the grill and help us celebrate our collective work to improve the health of the White River in 2022! Join us after the river cleanup or RSVP for the cookout only: mary[at]whiteriverpartnership.org or 802-763-7733.

In addition, we invite current WRP Members to cast a vote for one open Board seat: visit this link for more information!

Green Up the White on May 7!

We invite you to help us Green Up the White on Saturday, May 7, 2022!

To kick off the river recreation season, the WRP is coordinating a river cleanup event in conjunction with Green Up Day to remove as much trash from the White River and White River Water Trail access sites as possible.

In order to maximize our collective cleanup efforts, we have created a system that interested volunteers can use to sign-up to cleanup a specific White River site – see more information below.

How to Get Involved

Interested in helping us Green Up the White? Please follow the steps below to sign-up for a specific river cleanup site:

Step 1: Find a cleanup site – Please open the Green Up the White Sites List to find a list of river access sites in need of cleaning-up.

Step 2: Sign-up – Complete the Green Up the White Sign-Up to share your river cleanup plans. We will use the cleanup site information you provide to update the Green Up the White Sites List.

Step 3: Find Green Up Day resources – Visit this link to find more information about your town’s Green Up Day plans, including free trash bag pick-up locations, trash disposal locations, and more.

Step 4: Green Up the White – Visit your Green Up the White site on May 7 and dispose of the trash you collect at the nearest drop-off location (see town-specific Green Up Day info on this link).

Step 5: Share your results – Help us measure success by reporting your Green Up the White trash collection totals via the Green Up the White Trash Collection Report. We will tally the amount and weight of trash collected, and share the totals to celebrate our collective success!

Other ways to get involved

Got a new site? If you have identified a site along the White River that requires trash collection, but does not appear on the Green Up the White Sites List, please contact us: christian[at]whiteriverpartnership.org. We can add the new location to the List.
