The Great Willamette Clean Up 2019

Thanks to all the volunteers who joined for the Great Willamette Clean Up!


Community members took the health of the Willamette River into their own hands on Saturday, October 5th as they cleared trash and debris from the river as part of Willamette Riverkeeper’s annual Great Willamette Clean Up.

Marys River Watershed Council partnered with Greenbelt Land Trust to host volunteers at the confluence of the Marys and Willamette at the Corvallis BMX Park, the downtown waterfront, and Pioneer Park.

Our hard working crews, including teams from Hollingsworth & Vose and OSU Hydrophiles, removed 95 bags of trash, large furniture, tires, and other debris.

Thanks to Willamette RiverkeeperCorvallis Parks and Recreation, and Corvallis Public Works for making this river-wide and city-wide initiative possible, and thanks to Mazama Brewing at Big River and 101 Eat & Drink for hosting the amazing after party!
