More public access on the White River!

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2019

VRC was faced with a challenge to restore a riverside junkyard littered with rusty cars to an effective floodplain in an area of the White River in Hancock that was damaged by Tropical Storm Irene.  With VRC’s leadership, hundreds of junked cars were removed from this salvage yard and as a result, 5.5 acres of floodplains along the White River in Hancock have been transformed back to their original beauty and ecological utility.  Visitors can now enjoy the Bettis site via a newly constructed parking area and gravel trail to the river.
