The 25th Annual Deschutes River Cleanup July 31st

Posted on in category Positive News

What could be more positive than the community coming together to give some TLC to our beloved Deschutes River. This annual event brings hundreds of like minded people together for a day of fun cleaning up the river and its banks. We even made a featured video about it a few years ago. WATCH IT HERE.

Come out on Saturday, July 31st for the 25th annual Deschutes River Cleanup! River cleanup activities will take place along the riparian areas of the Deschutes River at six different sites: Meadow Camp, Farewell Bend Park, Riverbend Park, McKay Park, First Street Rapids Park, and Tumalo State Park. Volunteers will help pull invasive weeds and remove litter from the stream banks, as well as, help assist in the removal of trash directly from the river.

This year we are asking all volunteers to sign up for a specific site ahead of time. We will be limiting each site to 20 volunteers in order to enforce social distancing. Volunteers should come prepared with sturdy shoes, a hat, gloves, a water bottle, and snacks. We will provide trash bags.

This event is organized by the Deschutes Watershed Council and supported by a great group of local business. Learn More and Volunteer HERE.
