Watershed Alliance seeks Rivers Month volunteers


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.
