River Ambassadors will provide Lower Clackamas River visitors and recreationists, while social distancing, with stewardship and safety information to better enjoy this beautiful river. Throughout the summer, trained River Ambassador volunteers will be stationed Saturdays and Sundays at popular river access sites in Barton, Carver, and Milo McIver State Park.
The goals of the River Ambassador program include improving visitor experiences, communicating river conditions and obstacles, reducing river congestion, encouraging river stewardship and safety, and connecting visitors to the abundance of services in the Clackamas River region.
Volunteers will welcome Clackamas River visitors by answering questions, serving as the friendly face of the recreation and local community. River Ambassador weekends throughout the summer will lead up directly to WLCR’s annual Down The River Clean-Up on September 13th, 2020.
