Willamette River Cleanup

This event takes place all up and down the great Willamette River on an annual basis.  Our group went out for a couple of hours and came back with our boats filled with garbage.  Sponsored by REI and put on by the Willamette Riverkeepers thanks to all of the volunteers who came out and statewide.

SOLV Earth Day Cleanup

This was a fun day of cleaning up the banks and islands of the Lower Sandy River.  We ran through the small riffles and every so often pulled off to pick up trash, metal, even large tires!  What a great event organized by SOLV, a volunteer opportunity for Oregonians.  We paddled in a group further planned out by the LCCC.  We had a nice and warm Spring day and saw such wildlife as an Otter, Steelhead, and Osprey.
