The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and Alsea Sportsman’s Association is looking for volunteers to help out at a Sunday, April 23, clean up on the Alsea River near Waldport.
The day-long cleanup is set to begin at 9 am at the U.S. Forest Service’s Blackberry Campground, located about 19 miles east of Waldport on Highway 34.
“We need volunteers to work from the river and others to work from the road,” said ODFW’s Christine Clapp, adding: “This is a great and fun way for people to show their support for clean and healthy rivers.”
Free Northwest Forest day passes will be provided to volunteers, and a shuttle service will also be available. Both drift boats and motorboats are welcome. There will be coffee and donuts in the morning and a barbeque hosted by the Alsea Sportsman’s Association in the afternoon.
