: May 6th, 2017 annual Green River Cleanup


Join WRRR at the 32nd Annual Green River Cleanup on 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
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. WRRR will also be hosting a BBQ at Kanasket Palmer state
Park on Saturday afternoon for members (or a $5 donation for non-members). ( We did not have enough volunteers to support the Flaming geyser picnic this year.) Wrrr will provide burgers, brats and wrrr members are asked to bring potluck side items. Please plan ahead with your lunch / snacks
All cleanup volunteers have access to group camping at the Kanasket Palmer
Group camp Friday and Saturday nights.

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 up to a $50 value in the past!!!

Due to light committment on volunteers we will be adjusting the bbq.

-Update on the WRRR BBQ following the Green River clean up this coming Saturday:

WRRR will be hosting the BBQ at the group camp at KANASKET PALMER state park. WRRR WILL provide hamburgers and fixings (thank you Mary K.) and WRRR is requesting that members bring a pot luck dish to share with others. Salads and hot items like beans are requested.

So there will NOT be a large WRRR shindig at Flaming Geyser. Instead it will be at the WRRR camp at KP. And it is a potluck. So plan on an efficient shuttle from FG back to KP for all the fun.

There will still be the DO dessert cook off competition.

See you all there.
