The 2019 Celebrate Our River Event and River Duck Race held on the 24th was a great success! The rain didn't stop us and we had around 270 ducks entered in the race this year - a huge thank you to everyone who came out on Saturday to support WRIG. Charlotte, Taylor and Garett, this years field crew did an incredible job setting up the route, sending the ducks down river, scooping them up at the finish line, and collecting them all afterwards. This year’s winners are…

In 1st place: Crystal Loo

In 2nd place: Mitch Malboeuf

In 3rd place: Allison Robinson

Thank you to our many volunteers who made the day run smoothly and to our generous sponsors... we appreciate you! Thank you for supporting your local watershed group and for helping make the work we do possible!
