Willamette Riverkeeper and a host of other partners up and down the valley, are coordinating a river-wide water and land based clean up event on Saturday, October 2nd from approximately 9am-12:30pm.
So far, the river based effort in Eugene will take place along two stretches: Island Park to Alton Baker, and Alton Baker to Beltline West Boat Ramp, in addition to various land based groups along the riverbank. Highlights of the day include a post-clean up celebration at Alton Baker Park at 1pm (including a pizza lunch), free event t-shirts for volunteers, raffle prizes from Teva, and the opportunity to participate in a unique community art/plastic challenge in partnership with the International Plastic Quilt Project.
General information is available here.
