32nd Annual Rogue River Clean-Up & Let’s Pull Together!

May 18 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

Volunteer alongside Stream Smart, the Bureau of Land Management, Josephine County Parks, and other community partners for a trash clean-up and weed pull along the Rogue River in Josephine County!

There will be 4 activities to choose from on the morning of the event:

1.       Park and Riverside Clean-Up: Meet at the Hog Creek check-in and then drive to a designated park along the Rogue River for trash pickup. At each park, there will be a leader to hand out collection bags and help you determine where to wander! Walk the park from river’s edge to all facilities removing garbage – leave bags at a designated area. A list of parks and directions will be provided upon check-in. Head to Indian Mary County Park for the After-Party!

2.       Roadside Clean-Up: Meet at the Hog Creek check-in, then join team leaders for a “roadside” clean-up along Galice Rd. Wear high visibility vests for safety as cars can drive fast along this roadway. This option is best suited for adults. Leave collection bags at designated locations for future removal. Head to Indian Mary County Park for the After-Party!

3.       Instream* (via commercial raft or boat) Clean-Up and Weed Pulling: Meet at the Hog Creek check-in. This activity will take place using a commercial raft or boat. You will sign up to join a boat upon arrival, and different rafts will tackle different stretches of river. Limited capacity on commercial rafts and boats with outfitters – please plan an alternative activity if capacity is full. Head to Indian Mary County Park for the After-Party!

4.       Invasive Weed Pulling: Meet at the Hog Creek check-in. Learn from leaders on how to identify invasive weeds and what to do when you find them. Weed pulling opportunities will happen at various locations TBD. Head to Indian Mary County Park for the After-Party!

*Volunteers that wish to bring their own rafts and boats to participate in the instream clean-up are welcome to, however, the event insurance does not cover any accidents related to volunteers in their own watercraft. You must also be experienced on the water and able to navigate the river from Hog Creek downstream in a safe manner.*

Volunteer swag, prizes, snacks, water, and lunch will be provided!
