About Down the River Clean Up: We are pleased to partner with We Love Clean Rivers to coordinate the annual Down the River Clean Up on the Clackamas River each year!
Since its inception, the Down the River Clean Up has involved more than 2,500 volunteers and removed 25 tons of trash from the Clackamas River. A flotilla of volunteers raft, kayak, tube, SCUBA, or canoe down a fifteen-mile stretch of the Clackamas, removing any trash they may encounter along the way to preserve and protect the beautiful and bountiful river. But the fun doesn't stop there. All volunteers are treated to a post-event celebration which includes a free BBQ, live music, a silent auction with a great selection of outdoor gear and apparel, games, prizes and educational booths.
Sponsors and partners include Clackamas River Water Providers, KEEN Footwear, Next Adventure, Intel, Schwabe Law, eNRG Kayaking, Adventure Without Limits, Natural High Rafting, Outward Bound, Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board, Clackamas County, Metro, SOLVE and many more.
