Join WRRR, Paddle trails, OWA, WKC, BeWett, Nature Nuts, Boy Scouts, MGRC, WA state parks, and other several local clubs (If we missed your group let us know!) , neighbors and friends at the 39th Annual Green River Cleanup on Saturday May 6th!!! Every year lots of outdoor enthusiast enjoy the day recreating along the river, and cleaning up trash at the same time. As always, there will be lots to do for boaters and non boaters. River stretches are rated class 2-4. The last 3 years proved that we will boat no matter the flow! Hiking and ground crew sections are available from flat trail to adventurous river corridor cleaning. We found some huge trash areas and have local neighbor’s helping out as well!

Registration is online.      In person registration can be done from 9:30-11 AM at the Headworks put in (Just before the army corps gate on river left), and Kanasket-Palmer State Park from 9:30am- 11:00AM. Help us clean up the Green River and keep it one of the most beautiful rivers you can raft.

Cleanup members will enjoy free camping at Kanasket-Palmer Campground, Friday and Saturday nights.   Please RSVP if you have an RV.

WRRR will also be hosting a BBQ at Kanasket Palmer State Park Group Camp shelter on Saturday afternoon/evening after the event for members (or a $5 donation for non-members). Wrrr will provide burgers, brats., what you bring, and limited sides. Volunteers are asked to bring potluck side items. Please plan ahead with your lunch / snacks. What- you need a time?
