Willamette River Festival: Trashy Tuesday!

Tuesday, August 18, 2020

Get dirty for good during Willamette River Festival 2020!

Join Willamette Riverkeeper's Eugene-Springfield River Guardians volunteer crew to float the river while removing trash and debris from the urban waterfront as we prepare for high water events in winter. We’ll focus on the section between D Street in Springfield and Alton Baker Park in Eugene this month. Limited seating in rafts or BYOB only.

Please be prepared for warm weather - wear a sun shirt, bring sunscreen and water to stay hydrated. For your safety, please wear water appropriate pants and closed-toe hard soled shoes. PFDs provided for those without - PFDs and MASKS are required for all participants, though masks can be removed while on the water using social distancing between participants.

All Bring Your Own Boat (BYOB) participants should be able to adequately paddle in class 2 water, as there are some tricky places to navigate. Hand sanitizer, gloves, trash bags, pickers, gloves, tarps and tools for trash removal will be supplied.

IF YOU ARE BYOB PLEASE ARRIVE AT THE ASPEN / D STREET BOAT RAMP IN SPRINGFIELD NO LATER THAN 8:30am to unload your boat/gear and shuttle to Alton Baker. IF YOU HAVE RESERVED A SEAT IN A BOAT MEET AT THE ASPEN / D STREET at 9am to launch the clean up.
