river clean up


In partnership with the Upper Deschutes Watershed Council, we will be doing our annual river clean up again on July 29th. This is their 21th year of helping to keep our waterways clean! Pre registration is required and attending a meeting about the event will be scheduled. Come in and sign up and receive more details in coming weeks. THIS is a FREE event that we do with the community, and as always AIR is free! We would love to have volunteers help with the weeds, picking up trash and helping us keep our divers safe while they are in the water by walking the riverbanks. This can either be a 1 tank or a 2 tank dive to clean up the whole area from Bill Healy Bridge to the Colorado Bridge.
