The Friends of the Winooski River will be holding its annual river clean-up, and volunteers are needed to help remove trash at several sites on the North Branch and Winooski rivers. We’ll meet in front of Montpelier City Hall at 8:30 and walk or carpool to the cleanup sites from there. We are also in need of volunteers to help move canoes and tires before and after the event, so please contact us if you're able to help with those.
