Posted by Green River Cleanup

The 33rd Annual Green River Cleanup is right around the corner!!! Save the date for Saturday May 5th, 2018!

Join WRRR at the 33rd Annual Green River Cleanup on May 5th!!! 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 2 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 goes from 9:30-11 AM at the Headworks, and Kanasket-Palmer State Park from 9am- 11:30AM. 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. Note the Group camp is open to all volunteers! We have overflow spots available, but not until the group camp is full. UPDATE: Volunteers helping to setup the Green Clean event may stay at the group camp Thursday night.

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

There will be a DUTCH OVEN DESSERT COOKOFF, this year just like years past. IT will be held at 8:30pm at the Kanasket Palmer group camp. Show off your D.O. skills and impress your friends. Winner gets a prize which has been over a $50 value in the past!!!
