Mini Down the River Cleanup: Barton to Carver
HOW CLEAN CAN A RIVER GET? LET’S FIND OUT.
This is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy floating down the Clackamas River while also joining your community in removing litter and debris that accumulate over the busy summer season.
Organized by the Clackamas River Basin Council and We Love Clean Rivers, this fun event typically brings over 300 volunteers to a section of the Clackamas River between Estacada and Oregon City.
More than a decade ago, an “explosion of trash” on the river was the impetus for the event. Trash on the river threatens not only the river’s scenic beauty, but it also harms fish and wildlife and impairs drinking water quality. With the help of volunteers, since 2003 more than 40 tons of trash has been removed from the river!
