Founded in 1998, Friends of the Winooski River is a non-profit organization dedicated to the restoration and protection of the Winooski River and its watershed. We hope to create a community of stewards working to improve watershed health by reducing pollution, improving habitat, and increasing river stability, while also encouraging sustainable enjoyment of the river.
I love volunteering with Friends of the Winooski! The annual river clean up is one of my favorite days of the year......There's something uniquely satisfying about working together with your friends and neighbors to dislodge a tire from the mud. It's just fun!
