8th Annual Down the River Clean Up on the Clackamas River on Sept. 12
It’s that time again — time to hop in your kayak and pick up some trash! As paddlers, we’ve got to make time to protect and clean up our playground, so mark your calendars for the 8th Annual Down the River Clean Up on the Clackamas River on Sunday September 12, 2010. Clean-up begins at 8:30 a.m.
You can count on yet another fun day of paddling and stewardship activities in conjunction with the Clackamas River Basin Council. Registration is open now! If you are interested in serving as a key volunteer for this event (organizer, pod leader or otherwise), please email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With your support in 2009, over 350 river lovers showed up to the Clackamas and hauled out 4,960 pounds (2.48 tons) of trash from 14 miles of riverbank and bottom. As part of the Ripple Effect effort, 15 local artists transformed the trash into handcrafted works of art that are now enjoyed in a new way by our community, completing the full life cycle of our waste.
