Great Willamette Clean Up 2019

Hosted on the first Saturday of October, our annual Great Willamette Clean Up is a river-wide, community day-of-action.  Volunteers participate by canoe, kayak, SUP board, raft, motor boat, jet ski, drift boat, bike, and by foot to free our river of trash and debris, while improving habitat and community spirit along the way.  Cleanup sites are posted throughout the basin, and our on-line registration for this event will open in September.  Several areas host post-cleanup celebrations that include lunch, local frothy beverages, and “trash-talk.”
