Whippany River Watershed Action Committee
Executive Committee Meetings
The WRWAC hosts monthly meetings at the Morris County Library, Large Conference Room, 30 East Hanover Avenue, Whippany, at 5:45 p.m. Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month, except for January, July and August. These meetings are open to the public and feature an invited speaker. Parking is available at the library, pizza is served, and the public is highly encouraged to attend!
Next Action Committee Meetings:
June 6, 2018
Instead of a featured speaker, the WRWAC will be screening the movie, "River's Journey." This short documentary focuses on the Whippany River's clean-up over the years through the collaborative efforts of government, business, volunteer organizations, and the community at-large. It incorporates stories of the river told by longtime residents and illustrates current-day efforts to maintain and preserve the river.
There are no WRWAC meeting in July or August. Please check back later this summer for our Fall speaker series.
Monthly Committee Meetings
Executive Committee meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month at 6:00 PM at the Hanover Township Municipal Building. The Executive Committee is responsible for the operations and fiscal health of the Action Committee.

Save the Date! October 17, 2018 WRWAC Annual Celebration Dinner
On Wednesday, October 17, 2018 from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm, the Whippany River Watershed Action Committee (WRWAC), is holding its second annual celebration dinner at Birchwood Manor. This year we are pleased to honor and recognize Dr. George VanOrden for his years of service, commitment, and dedication to the WRWAC. The dinner is also an opportunity for the WRWAC to raise critical funds for our ongoing efforts to preserve, protect, and maintain the land and water resources of the Whippany River Watershed. All proceeds from the Celebration Dinner will be used to support and fund the WRWAC’s efforts throughout the watershed, including riparian restoration (e.g., removal of invasive species, planting of native vegetation), river clean ups to remove garbage and other debris, the installation of rain gardens, rain barrel workshops, and educational materials for local schools.
Tickets will go on sale for the Celebration Dinner in late August 2018. In the meantime, if you would like to support the WRWAC, we are currently looking for sponsors, advertisers, and/or donors for the tricky tray/silent auction to be held at the dinner. More information about each of these opportunities is available by clicking the links below.
Additional details about the Celebration Dinner are forthcoming. Stay tuned and thanks in advance for your generous support!
