Eugene-Springfield River Guardians Trashy Tuesday

  • West D Boat Ramp Springfield, OR 97477 (map)

Do you love clean water and healthy rivers?

Join Willamette Riverkeeper and friends at the first River Guardians Trashy Tuesday of the year to float and pick up trash from Aspen and West D Boat Ramp in Springfield to Alton Baker Park in Eugene. The focus will be on areas under bridges and the south bank between UO and EWEB on properties not easily accessible by foot.

Please meet at 8:15 a.m. (boaters) or 8:30 a.m. (non-boaters) at the West D Boat Ramp to shuttle vehicles to Alton Baker. Turn south off Martin Luther King Jr./Centennial Blvd. on Aspen and follow the gravel road past the upper parking area to the boat ramp. Bring snacks, water and appropriate layers for the weather. Please wear closed-toe shoes, long sleeves and pants. Gloves, pickers, garbage bags, tools, tarps and coffee will be provided.

All BYOB paddlers must be able to adequately paddle in Class 2 moving water. No boat? Your RSVP will reserve a seat in a raft or driftboat. Because the group will be working from the water, PFDs are required, and can be provided by Willamette Riverkeeper as indicated in the registration.
