2015 Cleanup Weights, Pics & Survey!...

Oct 1, 2015 by

Hello River Stewards! On behalf of We Love Clean Rivers and Clackamas River Basin Council, we’d like to send a big THANK YOU to 250+ volunteers that joined us this year for the 13th Annual Down the River Clean Up on the Clackamas River. Please help us out by taking 2-minutes to complete this short SURVEY by Tuesday Oct 6th.  This year, with your help, we cleaned up nearly 2 TONS (3,800 lbs.) of trash from the Clackamas River and recycled 82% of that trash.

Welcome to summer, We Love Clean Rivers! Today is the first day of the summer season, and if you haven’t already, it is time to wipe the dust off all of your river gear and hit the water! My name is Andy Wuest, and I am pleased to be coordinating this year’s 2013 11th Annual Down the River Clean Up on the Clackamas! Nastassja “Staj” Pace, who led the Clean Up the last 2 years,  is stepping down from her coordinator role, but don’t worry, she’s joining We Love Clean Rivers board as Treasurer and will still be involved. To put it into words, I have a warranted level of excitement to join WLCR and communicate with all of those who appreciate our natural streams of flowing water and the recreation that brings us to them. I grew...
