The 27th Annual Rogue River Cleanup is set for Saturday, May 18th, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on the Rogue River. This is the biggest cleanup project of the year on the river, backed by many local agencies, including Josephine County Parks, the Bureau of Land Management, Josephine County Solid Waste Agency and SOLVE.
All participants need to check in at the Whitehorse Park Boat Ramp 8:30 a.m., where they will receive garbage bags and gloves, along with a raffle ticket. Then they can disperse to pick up trash, and pull weeds along the river, with various drop-off spots for bags. People may float the river and pick up trash, or go to a specific park, or area of focus. A volunteer appreciation barbecue will be held at Indian Mary Park after the event. The barbecue will include live music and a raffle of various items from local businesses. Last year over 200 volunteers came out to clean up the Rogue River!
Cleaning up the river benefits wildlife, reduces human health risks, and increases quality of life. Meet at the Whitehorse Park Boat Ramp to check in at 8:30 AM For more information, please call Josephine County Parks at 541-474-5285, to Pre-Register
