Boat Greeter Coming to Waterbury Reservoir This Summer
This summer, if you launch your canoe, kayak or motorboat from the Blush Hill Access area on Waterbury Reservoir, chances are you'll meet a Boat Greeter. The greeter will provide information about the reservoir and educate users about what they can do to keep the lake free from invasive aquatic species.
The program is made possible by a grant from the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation to Friends of Waterbury Reservoir, a non-profit group committed to protecting and enhancing the ecological, recreational and community values of the Waterbury Reservoir.
The Friends of Waterbury Reservoir is currently accepting applications for the Boat Greeter position, which will be part time, a couple of days a week from May - September. You can view the complete job description, or to application here.
Since the funding isn't enough to cover the costs of the program, Friends of Waterbury Reservoir is also accepting donations. You can also donate to the boat greeter program here.

And don't forget, Waterbury Reservoir State Park will open for day use on May 20th!
