Stash the Trash Campaign

Jul 22, 2013 by

We Love Clean Rivers, Inc. is proud to continue our sponsorship of the Stash the Trash campaign to protect the Clackamas River.  The Stash the Trash campaign began in 2006 and came to fruition through the efforts of the Clackamas River Basin Council.   Through this partnership our organizations and volunteers have become intimately aware of the amount of garbage that piles up in the river and on its banks each year. As a sponsor of this campaign, We Love Clean Rivers asks its supporters to peer model “best-practice” by using these bags and leave the river cleaner than when you found it. The Clackamas River is greatly appreciated for its proximity and ease of access for Portland Metropolitan residents and as a destination river for all types of recreational users.

Hi from Andy

Jun 21, 2013 by

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...
