Earth Week Cleanup!

If you want to feel good about where you live, then cleaning up is a nice way to accomplish that. On Saturday we assisted with the Willamette Riverkeepers is picking up garbage along the banks of the section from Valley River Center down to the Beltine bridge. Don’t worry, we didn’t get all of it, so you can join on the next cleanup if you want to feel good too!

Canoe Canal at Flood

This Spring we had quite a downpour. Rains that lasted for days and days lead to the swelling of the watershed. We decided to paddle the canal when it was at it’s highest. Now it wasn’t too high at the top, as the Canoe Canal has an intake that can only allow so much water to come in at one time. But lower down after many little tributaries added some flow the park was underwater! Take a look…..
