Aquatic Invasive Workshop + Paddle

Join Willamette Riverkeeper, Benton SWCD, and other members of the Willamette Aquatic Invasive Network for a hands-on workshop on the Willamette River in the Albany Reach. Land managers, scientists, and concerned citizens are working together throughout the Willamette Basin to address the growing issue of aquatic invasives.  Workshop participants will learn to identify and survey for aquatic weeds while paddling between Hyak and Bowman Parks.  The Willamette River supports diverse native plant and wildlife populations and provides clean water to Oregonians. Learn about ways to identify, report, and control aquatic invasive species found on the Willamette River and it’s tributaries.  Bring your own boat or reserve a space in a Willamette Riverkeeper canoe. Water Weed Field Guide provided. Bring plenty of water, a warm layer, sun protection, brown bag lunch, snacks, and close-toed shoes. Register here!
