POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHER
The Siletz Watershed Council is inviting people of all ages to help keep the Siletz River clean and productive this Saturday, April 14.
The annual river cleanup will see some people bring their drift boats and friends to collect trash from the water side while others pick up along the shoreline.
The event runs from 9 am to 2 pm, starting and ending at Hee Hee Illahee Park at the south entrance to Siletz on Hwy. 229 and Gaither Street.
Garbage bags and work gloves will be provided along with coffee and donuts when registration begins at 9 am.
And at 2 pm, volunteers will be treated to chili, hot dogs, sodas and other snacks along with a raffle packed with great prizes.
Organizers encourage volunteers to pre-register at www.solveoregon.org, by searching for “Siletz.”
Last year, more than 20 volunteers and three drift boats collected more than 1,000 pounds of trash from the river.
Bring waterproof boots or waders and dress in layers. For more information, contact Evan Hayduk at 541-265-9195 or firstname.lastname@example.org
