The Greenway Guardians would like to invite you to join us for the annual Great Willamette Cleanup on Saturday, October 5th, 2019.

Willamette Riverkeeper, a wonderful organization that has helped our efforts on the Greenway, sponsors this event each autumn. We will meet at 9:30 am at the Greenway/VRC Bike Bridge in Maurie Jacobs Park. After hearing a brief safety talk by the city Parks Dept. and picking up equipment, we will walk north along the river and bike path collecting garbage from Maurie Jacobs Park to Hillcrest Drive, a one mile stretch. This annual event from 10am–1 pm is a terrific community project that prevents tons of garbage entering the river during high seasonal flows. Come join the fun and help our precious Willamette River! 

What: Willamette River Greenway cleanup

When: Saturday, October 5th, 9:30am–1pm. Come for all or just an hour!

Where: Beginning at the Greenway Bike Bridge and walking North to Hillcrest Drive

Who: You and all lovers of the Willamette River Greenway. All ages!

Please use the below link to register for the event. You can also register the day of the event, but pre-registration helps plan for the right amount of equipment required for this stretch of the Greenway. Thanks!
