10 Annual Great Willamette Clean Up

Registration is now OPEN!

CLICK HERE to view our available land and water based clean up sites, including numerous opportunities to reserve a seat in a kayak, canoe, raft or SUP thanks to our participating outfitters: Alder Creek Kayak & Canoe, Adventures Without Limits, City of Eugene River House, eNRG Kayaking, Next Adventure, Northwest Canoe Tours, and Paddle People in addition to Willamette Riverkeeper’s own canoes!

ABOUT: 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.”
