Winooski River Cleanup 9/14/19

River

September is Vermont's River Cleanup Month!

In 2014, the Vermont Legislature designated September as “River Cleanup Month” - for years, local watershed groups and other volunteers in Vermont have organized river cleanups to remove trash that has accumulated in our waterways. Trash in rivers and lakes not only creates an eyesore for paddlers and swimmers, but it also hurts wildlife and adds pollutants to our waterways. Join Winooski Recreation and Parks in keeping the Winooski River clean!

9 AM - 1 PM / Saturday, September 14, 2019 (Rain Date: 9/21/19)

Logistics:

Participants will meet staff and other volunteers at the O'Brien Community Center (32 Malletts Bay Ave) at 8:30 AM Parks staff will guide you to a specific area of need based on your ability/comfort - anyone can help clean our River!

Participants can:

• remove trash and debris from a riverbank
• help with invasive species removal
• pick up trash along the surrounding trails

Experienced kayakers/canoers - we want your help! Please be sure to let us know you intend on using your kayak or canoe, and please bring a life jacket/PFD if you plan to boat.

Participants are encouraged (but not required) to bring a water bottle, protective gloves, and grabbers.

Water safety is our first priority! Children younger than 18 years old must be accompanied by an adult. All participants must register in advance for this event (free and open to all, register right up to the day of the event).Click here to register: http://bit.ly/winooskiriverclean
