Willamette Riverkeeper is hosting their 9th Annual Great Willamette Clean Up. Jump into this river-wide, community day-of-action with us, together with your community, and others, all across the Willamette River basin. Volunteers are invited to get their Riverkeepin’ mojo moving by kayak, canoe, SUP, raft, drift boat, motor boat, jet ski, bike, and by foot to free our river of trash and debris while improving habitat and community spirit along the way. Our 24 cleanup sites are hosted throughout the entire basin, from Oakridge to Scappoose and beyond! Several sites, including the greater Portland area and Southern Valley sites, host family friendly post-cleanup celebrations that include lunch, local frothy beverages, and “trash-talk.”
There are both land-based and on water clean-up sites! You do not need to own a boat in order to get involved on the water. But, we have numerous sites where kayaks, canoes, SUPs, and seats-in-rafts are provided by local outfitters and organizations. Participants are also invited to bring their own boats (BYOB) at many sites.
