Help Keeping Your Local Portland Area Rivers Clean!

I am putting this information up here so you can all be aware of possibilities to help out with our local fisheries and rivers. Clean rivers will help everything ranging from how we feel about the waterways to the actual organisms that exist within them. By knowing when an event is coming, people can plan ahead and they can mark it down on the calender. Lets all take part in keeping our Portland Rivers clean!

Below is information about a cleanup that is happening on the Clackamas River:

On Sunday September 11th, 2011 WLCR, in partnership with the Clackamas River Basin Council, will host the 9th annual "Down the River Cleanup" on Oregon's Clackamas River!
Join WLCR and the CRBC in coordinating a collaboration of government bodies, outdoor recreation companies and over 300 invidual volunteers in removing trash from 15 river miles!
Get wet, have fun, splash, and help restore the Clackamas to its pristine state. The salmon will thank you. You'll discover the beauty of the river, take ownership, and spread the word to others!
Once finished with your section of the river, you'll be rewarded with a sumtuous picnic featuring organic cuisine and live entertainment. Plus you'll get a chance to compete bidding on some sweet outdoor gear!
Children welcome!
