Clackamas River Clean Up This Weekend (OR)

Posted: 09/05/2012
By: Thomas O'Keefe


We Love Clean Rivers, in partnership with Clackamas River Basin Council, hosts the 10th Annual Down the River Clean Up on the Clackamas!
This is a on-river, volunteer clean up made possible by a rich network of recreationalists and a strong NW community that joins together on drift boats, kayaks, rafts, tubes and even with SCUBA gear, to scour the banks and river bottom for garbage.
Attracting over 400 people, and typically removing 3-4 tons of trash from the river that provides the Portland metro area with drinking water, American Whitewater invites our members and supporters to join the event to make this 10th Anniversary a splashing success!
After volunteers float and fill their boats, all are invited back to Barton County Park from 3-6PM for a family friendly celebration with a free BBQ, live music by TapWater, Hopworks beer, booths, games, prizes and a great silent auction.
Don’t own a boat? There are Event Raft Seats available, as well as on-land positions. 
All participants must pre-register online. Registration closes 9/6.
