This is our 5th year cleaning up this section of the North Umpqua between the Tyee Restaurant and Milepost 9 boat launch on the Sutherlin/Elkton highway. We clean up the pullouts and fishing holes along this heavily used section of the North Umpqua. We will meet at the Sutherlin, OR Taco Bell parking lot 112 Clover Leap Loop at 7:50 AM to complete the signup paperwork. Then we will travel out to the boat launch at milepost 9 at 8:20 AM. Feel free to park in the gravel area on the north side of the Sutherlin Elkton highway at milepost 9 and walk into the boat launch or drive in on the gravel road to the boat launch. We will then make our way back toward the Tyee restaurant pulling out at every pull out on the south side of the road along the way cleaning up trash. This process typically takes about 4 hours and we plan to be done around 12:30 PM with the trucks heading to the dump to dispose of the trash and recycle.
