Opportunity Details

Cathedral Park Beach Cleanup


Join together with the Human Access Project, the Cathedral Park Neighborhood Association, Portland Harbor Community Advisory Group, Portland Harbor Community Coalition and community members to clean up Cathedral Park Beach on the Willamette River. April 17th 4:30-7pm will be a nice low tide which will provide an opportunity to get to typically inassessible debris at the river's edge. 

We will break into three separate groups lead by three separate leaders to clean up the park, the beach area north of the fishing dock gangway and south of the gangway. 

Be prepared to get in the river - wear appropriate shoes which may get wet!

Volunteers will gather at Cathedral Park Beach to check-in, get litter gear and then head out to pick up trash, and debris on the rivers edge. Let’s come together and make a real impact for the river and the community! 

Pre Registration is Required: This event is by pre-registration only. If you would like to participate please sign up (Green Sign Up Button Below) before spots run out. 

Date: Saturday, April 17th 

Time: 4:30pm to 7:00 pm.

Accessibility: The check-in area and the cleanup work will take place on a beach that is not ADA accessible. A person could check-in and collect litter in the park and nearby city streets, which are accessible, although they would be working away from the group. Please reach out if you have any questions or a need for accommodations. We will do our best to support you.
