Port to Port Cleanup of the Yaquina River

The U-DA-MAN Fishing Tournament will be conducting their third annual Port to Port Yaquina River Clean Up on Saturday, April 20, 2019 in conjunction with Earth Day 2019. We will once again be operating both boat and land based crews between the Port of Newport and the Port of Toledo. The purpose of this event is to clean up debris and garbage that is not accessible from the roadway and and can only be accessed from the water. We transport many of our volunteers by boat to locations on the River banks that are inaccessible from the road. We are the only group at this time that does river cleanup on the Yaquina River from boats. As in past years, this project is sponsored by the Ports of Toledo and Newport, Oregon SOLVE, Englund Marine Supply, Dahl Disposal and Thompson Disposal. We are again anticipating participation by the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office Marine Patrolas well. We have a safety plan in place and make sure all boats have the required equipment on board prior to launching. All volunteers working from both the boats and the docks at the ramp will be required to wear a PFD. Each boat will have a working VHF radio on board. Last year we had a total of 35 volunteers working from six boats and on foot to reach areas along an approximate 12 mile stretch of river. An estimated 5,000 lbs. of trash was collected in a six hour period.

SOLVE IT for Earth Day at Rooster Rock

The staff of your Oregon State Parks in the West Columbia River Gorge are excited to host this year's Earth Day volunteer event at Rooster Rock State Park in partnership with SOLVE! Our goal this year is to replace invasive vegetation in areas where it has been removed with native trees and shrubs. We'll be clearing out competing vegetation and laying down wood chips to hold moisture and discourage competition, as well as removing invasive species that compete with native plant growth. Oregon Parks and Recreation Department is committed to ensuring that Oregon's outdoor recreational spaces are well taken care of for the enjoyment and education of current and future generations and we invite all volunteers to join us in this great effort! Earth Day is important to everyone, so park staff have made sure that there are activities for all ages of volunteers. This event is family and dog friendly! Dogs must be kept on a leash and we ask that folks with furry companions bring bags to pick up your pup's waste. Please check the weather report before leaving the house and dress for the weather, but long pants and sturdy shoes are recommended, regardless of the forecast. There are flush restrooms and potable water on-site, so waterbottles can be filled. Rooster Rock State Park is in Corbett, OR, along the Columbia River. Take I-84 (east if you're coming from the Portland area, west if you're coming from the Cascade Locks area) and take exit 25 for Rooster Rock. There will be a day use booth at the entrance, but volunteers are NOT required to buy a day use pass that day. We will be meeting in front of the office building to get volunteers registered and talk about safety and the history of Earth Day. Thank you for your commitment to Earth Day and to Oregon State Parks!

Trillium Creek Trail Ivy Removal West Linn

Trillium Creek Trail in West Linn is an area of 16.7 sloped acres with heavy ivy infestation on trees and ground. The trilliums in many places are overwhelmed by ivy. There is a creek at the bottom of the ravine. We have held two small ivy pulls and one large one. In the latter, several giant Pacific salamanders were found under the ivy by the great PGE volunteers brought out by SOLVE. We are looking to make further progress on this multi-year project for Earth Day. We have applied for a Metro grant, which requires matching funds in either cash or volunteer effort. Volunteers on this project will not only be removing ivy, but helping us meet our matching fund goals. Left to its own devices ivy will eventually kill the Doug firs in the area, and increase the risk of both fire and landslide in the long run. Not to mention kill all the native plants. This is a close-in suburban green space which may be convenient for those who have other plans that day.

Wilkes Creek Headwaters Earth Day Event!

The Columbia Slough Watershed Council is happy to be spending Earth Day with Portland Parks and Recreation! Celebrate with us by planting and mulching native plants! No experience is necessary, just a desire to get your hands dirty! Wilkes Creek Headwaters contains the springs that feed the only free flowing stream in the city that still enters the Columbia Slough. Restoring headwater habitat, the habitat at the source of a river or stream, is an important part of the waterway restoration process. Wilkes Creek flows into the Columbia Slough, so its protection is part of a greater effort to keep the Slough healthy. Formerly a hazelnut orchard and holly farm, volunteer restoration efforts have been focused on enhancing the already existing Western red cedar forest, and adding native trees, and shrub and forb under-story to the rest of the park. This event runs rain or shine! Be sure to dress for the weather and bring water, rain gear and sturdy shoes. Snacks, tools, training and gloves will be provided. Registration for this event is requested. REGISTER HERE! Accessibility: The work site is about 1/4 mile from our meeting site. The trail is part grass, part gravel. The work site itself is wooded and uneven. There are no restrooms or shelters on site. We will have one porta-potty available for use. Please feel welcome to contact us to talk more about this site and its amenities. Meet at NE 154th & Fremont. From Sandy Blvd., turn south onto NE 154th. Parking is along the street; please do not block neighbors’ driveways. Tri-met bus #12 (NE 154th & Sandy Blvd. stop). Walk south on NE 154th for ¼ mile.
