We’re excited – stoked, even – to announce that Backcountry Gear will be presenting a talk by renowned rockclimber Will Stanhope. A portion of proceeds from the event will benefit the McKenzie River Trust’s work to protect and care for the special landscapes that surround us right here in western Oregon. Please join us!
We have two great events happening on Earth Day weekend, and we hope you can join us!
Volunteer on Green Island
Saturday, April 21 from 9:30am to 12:30pm
We’re hosting volunteer groups at least once a month on Green Island this spring and summer, and one of our volunteer days happens to fall on Earth Day weekend! Get outside, and do something good for the earth. Help plant and care for native trees and shrubs on our largest protected property on the mainstem of the Willamette River just west of Coburg. Your advance RSVP is requested. Get more information and sign up here.
14th Annual Earth Day Celebration at EWEB’s Rivers Edge Plaza
Saturday, April 21 from 11am to 5pm
We’re once again joining the Earth Day celebration! Visit with MRT staff and Board members, check out maps of the places where we work, and pick up an MRT sticker, bookmark, and a copy of our latest newsletter when you visit our booth.
The McKenzie River Guides Association, the McKenzie Flyfishers and the McKenzie Watershed Council are sponsoring the annual McKenzie River Cleanup on Saturday, July 9th. Volunteers are needed to help keep the river scenic and clean. Boaters will pick up trash along sections of the river from Ollalie Campground to Armitage Park, and volunteers without boats will clean up heavily-used areas throughout the valley. Volunteers are especially needed to cover some of the popular public sites, such as the area around Leaburg Dam and Lake. Following the cleanup, volunteers can celebrate with a barbecue at the Hendricks Bridge Wayside. To register please contact Larry Six or Amanda Wilson at the McKenzie Watershed Council: 541-687-9076 or email@example.com.
