We Love Clean Rivers, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non‐profit organization dedicated to cleaning high use rivers by mobilizing the river recreation community in partnership with local environmental, recreation, and educational organizations. By coordinating with kayakers, rafters, anglers, scuba divers and tubers to clean up waterways, We Love Clean Rivers broadens engagement with river restoration activities, increases the recreation community’s understanding of threats to watershed health, and provides unique opportunities for the community to give back to the incredible resources we use year-round.
We Love Clean Rivers was awarded an ACA/ L.L. Bean CFS Grant to help fund the Clackamas Down the River Clean Up, which seeks to revitalize a 15-mile section of the Clackamas River from Barton Park, in Boring, OR, to the Clackamette Park, in Oregon City, OR. Since 2002, hundreds of volunteers return each year to participate in removing thousands of pounds of trash from the Clackamas River with We Love Clean Rivers. The ACA is proud to join the team and help make the Clackamas a healthier and cleaner river year-round!
