17th Annual Down The River Cleanup was a great success! Thank you to all of the volunteers who turned out on September 8th to help keep our river clean.

Looking to get involved in restoring our watershed? Consider volunteering with CRBC!

In addition to the in stream and riparian restoration projects we have going on across the watershed, CRBC also hosts Saturday Work Parties. Typically held during the planting season from December through March, work parties invite individuals of all ages to experience planting native trees and shrubs while learning about how we can improve watershed health. When we aren’t planting, we might be pulling invasive weeds, recycling Christmas trees in a side channel, or cleaning up a creek – check out our upcoming volunteer opportunities below!

Ever Wonder Where Your Recycled
Xmas Tree Goes?

Some discarded Xmas trees are used by Clackamas River Basin Council to provide refuge and habitat for young and migrating fish. Volunteers place trees in side channels and streams. Take a look at what’s under the surface.
