Hey Guys, Clackamas River Cleanup is happening on Sept. 13th. Registration just opened:
http://welovecleanrivers.org/

We definitely need drift boats to help carry trash! Last year we hauled out 3.08 tons of trash, from Barton Park to the mouth. It's grown even bigger, now we're an official non-profit with big plans for other rivers. I know it's traditionally been a lot of the paddling community behind it (kayakers, rafters) but it would be awesome to get more of the angling crowd involved (I've been involved with both, though more paddling the last few years).

If anyone can help in any way, check out the website or let me know too.
Thanks,
Jason

It's coming up fast! We could still use some drift boats to help carry trash. If you're up for helping clean the Clackamas River, our backyard playground, register asap:
(Registration is closed, filled up fast this year!)

Thanks and see ya'll there!
Jason

Just a reminder... this is happening the day after tomorrow, Sunday, the 13th

The organizers say 375 people have volunteered.

Each pod of volunteers will be working these stretches of the Clackamas:

1) Barton to Carver
2) Carver to Riverside
3) Riverside to Clackamette

It's gonna be a great day to play with trash! Weather is looking sweet, we have a big crew this year, a great bbq planned and a HUGE silent auction and raffle. Proceeds go toward future river cleanups, with some plans started for the Kalama, Molalla, and others hopefully in the next year.

For those who didn't register beforehand, this year we're so full that we can't accommodate last minute volunteers. Keep an eye on the website though for more events!

Thanks,
Jason

I was impressed yesterday by the crowd that turned out for the Clackamas River Cleanup. This was my first time and I enjoyed myself a lot. People were friendly, worked hard and had fun.

Pods of rafts, kayaks, sport boats, dive teams, and "garbage scowls" picked up trash from their assigned 1-mile sections of the river between Barton and Clackamette parks. I hope the organizers report the total amount if stuff that no longer litters the Clackamas' water, islands, and river banks. I thought I heard something about adding a river (Washougal ?) to the clean-up next year.

Please, each time you are on the river notice if it's cleaner and take out any trash you find.

I just received an email from the event coordinator, Brent Dahl, saying:

Trash removed: 4,960 pounds (2.48 tons)
Volunteer count: 329 volunteers
