Canal cleanup with Organically Grown Company and the Willamette Riverkeepers!

To begin our 2023 season we had a wonderful group of volunteers come to the Canoe Canal and clean it up. While we provided the canoes, the Riverkeepers provided all of the safety related items and trash pickup gear. Organically Grown provided the key element…person power!!

In recent years the Canal has been well looked after and there wasn’t an overwhelming amount of garbage. But we were able to get a lot of stuff out of the water. Take a look at these pictures to see how nice it was on the water and what a great group effort this was 🙂 Now paddlers can start the season with a fresh looking canal and more importantly the waterfowl, fish and other wildlife don’t have to deal with as much of our human waste in their waterway….
