Upcoming events

Due to the uncertainty surrounding Covid-19 (coronavirus), the WRP has cancelled all in-person events through summer 2020.

WRP response to Covid-19

In keeping with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the WRP office is closed until further notice. WRP staff are working remotely from home offices, so please contact us if/as needed.

In addition the WRP has cancelled all in-person events through summer 2020. We will re-evaluate as more information from the CDC becomes available.

The WRP is coordinating our summer volunteer programs, including water quality monitoring and White River Water Trail stewardship, in a way that is consistent with CDC guidance.

Finally the WRP is planning to implement several large-scale restoration projects, including a dam removal and floodplain restoration project, now that this type of construction work is allowed during the field season (July 1 – October 1).
