Down the River Clean Up on the Clackamas!
Mark your calendars for the 12th Annual Down the River Clean Up on Sunday, September 7th! Last year, over 350 volunteers removed 3 tons of trash from the lower 15 mile stretch of the Clackamas River from Barton to Clackamette Parks. This year we hope to top even that! So grab your drift boat, kayak, inner-tube, SCUBA gear, or whatever floats your boat and join us for a fun day on the river. Registration opens August 1st here. This event is co-coordinated by We Love Clean Rivers and the Clackamas River Basin Council. More information.
