Platte River Revival

Platte River Revival Interior Page Header
 The Platte River Revival is the cleanup and restoration effort of the North Platte River near Casper, Wyoming. What started as a simple cleanup of the North Platte and its banks has evolved into a restoration of the river along with the wetlands and habitat in and along the river.

The goal of the Platte River Revival is to foster a healthy and sustainable river system that is a catalyst for economic development and improved quality of life in the Casper area.

The Platte River Revival Volunteer Day takes place annually in September in conjunction with National Public Lands Day. Hundreds of volunteers remove litter from the river and its banks, as well as remove invasive species and protect native habitat.

The Platte River Revival also involves construction projects in and along the river. These projects beautify and stabilize banks as well as restore and improve water and land habitats.
