It is time for a celebration! Molalla River Watch adopted 12 miles of the Molalla River in the Molalla River Corridor in 1992 through the SOLVE Adopt-A-River program and has been coordinating two annual river-cleanups for 23 years.
Bring gloves, wear sturdy shoes, and dress appropriately for the weather.
Volunteers will disperse to the Molalla River Corridor and other public river access areas near Molalla for river cleanup, trail-work or enhancement activities.
Return to Feyrer Park in the afternoon for the Volunteer Appreciation BBQ.
More events coming soon...
The Molalla Recreation Corridor is about 10 to 15 miles south-east of the town of Molalla, Oregon, in the western foothills of the Cascade Range mountains. NOTE: Due to the high canyon walls, cell phones do NOT usually work in the Molalla River corridor, and GPS reception is unreliable in some areas. The region consists of old logging roads, so automated maps (including Google Maps, Mapquest and GPS devices) may not work very well. These map links will assist you, but please plan ahead.
