Volunteers Needed for Willamette River-Clean-Up

Friday, Decemember 19th at 8:00am

Willamette Riverkeeper (WR), in cooperation with the University of Oregon, Union Pacific, Lane County Sheriffs, HIV Alliance, Oregon State Parks and Oregon Dept. Of Fish & Wildlife will be conducting a river cleanup adjacent to Franklin Blvd. on Friday, December 19, 8AM-4PM.

This will be an intense debris removal project, including bio-hazardous materials, sharps and items ranging from mattresses to televisions, much of which is imbedded in the soil and stream channels where water is now collecting.

The goal is to clear all garbage and debris from the area, before high water can take it further downstream.

Interested volunteers can register to participate by contacting local WR Coordinator, Michelle Emmons at emmons@willametteriverkeeper.org or call 541-913-4318.

ALL VOLUNTEERS MUST PRE-REGISTER to participate.
