31st Annual Downtown White River Cleanup

Friends of White River is again co-hosting the 31st Annual Downtown White River Cleanup next month. Since its inception, the annual effort has collected more than 2 million pounds of trash and illegally dumped debris from the river’s banks.

Advance registration is now closed.

All participants will be provided a pizza lunch at the end of the event. Volunteers will gather at the west Victory Field parking lot (enter from Maryland Street), across from White River State Park at 8 a.m. on Saturday, April 13 and work till noon. The sites to be targeted are designated spots on the river corridor within the city center.

White River Guide app survey

Friends of the White River has recently received funding through Reconnecting to Our Waterways to revamp our White River Guide app. The current White River Guide functions as a digital brochure for the White River with a focus on paddling. This includes river maps with points of interest such as boat and canoe launches, water level gauges, bridges, dams, and more. It also contains information about the White River watershed, fish consumption, and links to additional resources.

There is an opportunity to give Friends of the White River input to help create a stronger resource for connecting people to the river by taking a survey. You can also help by sharing the survey with other organizations to help gather as much information as possible from many different demographics. The survey only takes about 5 minutes to complete.
