Sunday, August 12: Tour the Upper & Lower Eaton Dams on the First Branch of the White River

The WRP is working with local engineering firm Ripple Natural Resources and 2 private landowners to design the removal of the Upper Eaton & Lower Eaton Dams on the First Branch of the White River in Royalton.

Join us for a free project tour – meet at the small gravel parking lot at the northeast corner of the Mill Road bridge across the First Branch in Royalton. Dress to walk along the river.

July – August: Seeking White River Water Trail Stewards

The WRP is launching a White River Water Trail Stewardship Network this summer to keep the 40+ designated public access sites along the White River clean and accessible.

To launch this effort, we are seeking 10+ volunteers to help us pilot the Stewardship Network in summer 2018! Volunteer stewardship responsibilities would include:

  • Monitoring a specific White River Water Trail (WRWT) site once a month in June, July, and August;
  • Gathering data on trash, hazards, and site improvement needs;
  • Collecting trash in the trash bags provided (as needed) and leaving the bag(s) at the site for pick-up;
  • Reporting data via an electronic SurveyMonkey form by the Monday following the third full weekend of each month (June 18, July 16, August 20); and
  • Participating in the WRP Source to Sea Cleanup on September 9 from 2-4pm (optional).

Follow this link to see the WRWT sites across the White River watershed that require a site steward!

If you are interested in becoming a site steward, please contact WRP Watershed Assessment Intern Christian Pelletier at christian[at]whiteriverpartnership.org or 802-763-7733.
