Friends of Waterbury Reservoir is happy to announce receipt of a $1,750 grant to fund a Boat Access Greeter Program this summer!


Having a Boat Greeter available to educate boaters about best practices on the Waterbury Reservoir will help everyone enjoy this great resource, which an important part of our mission.

We are pleased that the Vermont’s Department of Environmental Conservation recognizes the importance of this program. The funding is not enough to meet the full cost of the program, so we are seeking contributions from individuals who also care about the Reservoir.

We plan to raise at least 25% of the grant to get the most from the program. FWRes will hire a part-time greeter to serve one or more days per week at the Blush Hill and Waterbury Dam access areas from May to September.

Employment application coming soon!

OUR MISSION

Friends of Waterbury Reservoir (FWRes) is a Vermont non-profit organization committed to protecting, improving and enhancing the ecological, recreational, and community values of the Waterbury Reservoir.

We accomplish this through:
• Reservoir stewardship
• Research and community involvement
• Collaboration with all stakeholders
• Connecting people and place

OUR VISION

The Waterbury Reservoir is a thoughtfully-maintained, safe, and clean public-access recreation area located at the crossroads of world-class resort towns and yet offers a remote experience for users. The Waterbury Reservoir is recognized as a unique resource and an important conservation and economic asset for the people of the state of Vermont.

OUR CORE VALUES

We believe it is essential to:
• Strengthen relationships with stakeholders including neighbors, businesses, governments and other organizations and extend our role as convener and supporter;
• Build a community of Reservoir water- and land-based Reservoir users; and
• Support stewardship and conservation of the natural world on and around the Reservoir.

We believe it is important to:
• Provide access, and promote responsible recreation as a means to engage people directly and pass on timeless values;
• Honor the history of the communities that existed on the Reservoir and their contribution to the area;
• Collaborate with other organizations in accomplishing shared goals; and
• Use outdoor recreation as a vehicle to help youth engage with and learn about the natural world.
