    Tualatin Riverkeepers

    Seeking:  Volunteer Paddle Trip Leaders

    The passion of TRKs Paddle Trip Leader Volunteers is what gives life to our Trips & Tours program.  Volunteers not only make sure participants have an enjoyable and safe time on the river, but they serve as ambassadors for our mission - to protect, restore and enjoy the Tualatin River.

    TRK is seeking Paddle Trip Leader Volunteers to help people in our community and beyond discover the Tualatin River, Washington County’s only river.  Let us give you an excuse to paddle more often while sharing your skills with others. 

    TRK’s Trip Leader Training will begin in February 2017.  The trainings include a classroom session, a pool session, a CPR-First Aid class and, best of all, a Kick-off Party in the spring to get the season started off right.  Check our website for upcoming training dates and locations.  For more information about the program, contact Margot at margot@tualatinriverkeepers.org or 503-218-2580.

    Willamette Riverkeepers:  TRASH TUESDAYS

    Do you have a bit of time on Tuesday's around lunch to lend a hand?

    In recent years the issue of trash and debris along the river has become acute. All manner of debris accumulates along the Willamette in the central part of Portland, Eugene, Salem, Springfield and beyond. We have an active program in Springfield/Eugene that works to deal with this issue called our River Guardian ProgramNow, we are launching a pilot project called "Trashy Tuesday" in the Portland area, with the hope of expanding to the mid Willamette next year. 

    What: "Trashy Tuesday" recurring river clean up

    When: Tuesday, 11/8 from 11:30am 1:30pm

    Where: meet the the SE Portland Boathouse Dock

    Join us every second Tuesday of the month at the recently improved Portland Boathouse dock, and help us pick up trash in the central part of Portland along the Willamette. Park in the 2 hour visitor parking spaces near the building, on the street, or ride your bike. 

    Reserve a seat in one of our canoes, or bring your own boat. We will provide trash bags, non latex gloves, trash pickers, coffee and snacks. Dress for the weather and paddling (layers, boots, and rain gear). We will spend about an hour or so on the water. 

    Get your hands dirty and make a difference!
