River Conservator


Joyce & Bill Gruenberg Named 2015 River Conservators

Moving to Aspen in 1972, Joyce and Bill immediately began volunteering in their new community. They live along the Roaring Fork River in Aspen, and Bill, an avid fisherman, has deep knowledge of all the best fishing spots on our local rivers.

Seventeen years ago, the director of Roaring Fork Conservancy, Jeanne Beaudry, asked Bill how a new non-profit organization could be successful in raising funds.  Bill responded by arranging a meeting between Jeanne and his wife Joyce, who had significant fundraising experience.  The River Rendezvous was the brainchild of that meeting and is still going strong today.  The basic format remains—have a unique dinner party, preferably beside the river, with an auction.  Over the years, we refined the details for what continues to be a very successful gathering.  Funds raised collectively at our 15 River Rendezvous have exceeded $3.4 million dollars.

In addition, Joyce suggested forming the Rivers Council, now the Roaring Fork Conservancy National Council.  This group of dedicated individuals continues to raise funds and build awareness of Roaring Fork Conservancy’s river projects and water education programs.

Bill served the Rivers Council as President and Vice-President and is currently the Treasurer.  Along with Bill, Joyce has been on the committee since 1999.  Both have been incredibly involved with River Rendezvous since its inception and are great supporters of Roaring Fork Conservancy.  Congratulations, Joyce and Bill!
