WHAT: Trashy Tuesday- Eugene/Springfield

Please dress for the weather - bring weather-appropriate layers, including a hat and gloves for cooler temperatures - this is a rain or shine event!

PFDs provided for those without - PFDs are required for all participants. 

All Bing Your Own Boat (BYOB) participants should be able to adequately paddle in class 2 water, as there are some tricky places to navigate. Trash bags, pickers, gloves, tarps and tools for trash removal will be supplied.
