Saturday, April 26, 2014 – Annual Spring Molalla River Cleanup and Corridor Enhancement
Meet at Feyrer Park at 9 AM for registration and select your choice of project. Projects include trash cleanup along the river in the Molalla River Corridor and other public access sites near Molalla; under-story shrub planting; former campsite restoration; and trail work on the shared-use, non-motorized trail system.

We hope to see you all there to help pick up trash ...OR... help plant native trees and shrubs. We have 500 native under-story shrubs ready to go in the ground. We've also confirmed a team of paddlers will be cleaning up the river from Feyrer Park to Wagon Wheel Park.

There will be a volunteer appreciation BBQ back at Feyrer Park in the afternoon.

Volunteers can register at the event, or pre-register via SOLVE's website as part of the SOLVE, SOLVE IT EarthDay event.

More events coming soon...


 Driving Directions

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.

  • Molalla to Feyrer Park
    Lat/Lon: N 45.13882, W 122.53507 (WGS-84 datum) Show in Google Maps
    (Driving directions in Google Maps)
    From the center of Molalla, head East on Main St. (Hwy 211). At the edge of town, turn right (South) at the "Y" intersection. Follow the sign and stay on Feyrer Park Road for about 2 miles (about 6 minutes by car). The park entrance is on the left, immediately before the bridge over the Molalla River.
     
  • Molalla to Hardy Creek Trailhead
    Lat/Lon: N 45.02167, W 122.48523 (WGS-84 datum) Show in Google Maps
    (Driving directions in Google Maps)
    13 miles; about 30 minutes by car: Use the directions above and continue East, past Feyrer Park. Cross Feyrer Park bridge and turn right (South) on Dickey Prairie Road. Drive 1.6 miles South to Dickey Prairie Store (last chance to buy supplies!). Stay right (South) on Dickey Prairie Road and continue another 3.6 miles. Turn right (West) onto the bridge for S. Molalla Forest Road. Stay on Molalla Forest Road, following the Molalla River for 4.9 miles. The Hardy Creek Trailhead parking lot is on the right. NOTE: Most map systems will tell you to stay on west side of the river, bypassing Feyrer Park, but that part of Molalla Forest Road is private and gated.
