The Westport River Watershed Alliance is celebrating Rivers Month and the summer solstice in June and the Alliance needs volunteers. WRWA invites anyone interested in helping out to attend a volunteer meeting at the Watershed Alliance’s office located at 1151 Main Road in Westport on Saturday, March 2, from 9 to 10:30 a.m.
On Saturday, June 8, volunteers are needed for the first Watershed Bike Ride with registration and ride-related tasks. On Saturday, June 22, WRWA is hosting its annual River Day Festival at the Head Landing and volunteers are needed for set-up and take-down, children’s activities that include fish printing, stilt building, mini boat building, and food. Volunteers are also needed to help with registration for the non-competitive family paddle that leaves from the Hix Bridge
Both events offer volunteers a fun-filled day and the reward of supporting an organization whose mission is to protect the natural resources of the river and watershed.
