Rogue River Cleanup
The 26th Annual Rogue River Cleanup is set for Saturday, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the Rogue River. This is the biggest cleanup project of the year on the river, backed by Josephine County Parks, the Bureau of Land Management, Josephine County Solid Waste Agency and SOLVE.
All participants need to check in at Hog Creek boat ramp west of Merlin at 8:30 a.m., where they will receive garbage bags and gloves, along with a raffle ticket. Then they can disperse to pick up trash, and pull weeds along the river, with various dropoff spots for bags. People may float the river and pick up trash, or go to a specific park, or area of focus.
A volunteer appreciation barbecue will be held at Indian Mary Park after the event. The barbecue will include live music and a raffle of various items from local businesses. Last year's cleanup had 200 volunteers, who filled a 10 cubic yard dumpster with garbage, and also collected 2 yards of metal, 2 yards of comingled recyclables and 130 tires. Cleaning up the river benefits wildlife, reduces human health risks, and increases quality of life.
