Greenway Trail | River Bank Clean Up & Ocean Going Barge Launch
Saturday, July 12th 9:00am – 1:00pm
Meet in the McDonald’s parking lot, N Going Street and Port Center Way (left at first light).
As high water recedes, the banks of the Willamette River along Swan Island accumulate a lot of debris. Join your neighbors in cleaning up debris along the bank and litter along the Willamette Greenway Trail on Swan Island. Then take a break and….
* explore the entire one mile of built trail on Swan Island and learn more about npGREENWAY’s efforts to extend the trail from the Eastbank Esplanade to St. Johns and the Columbia River.
* catch a view of birds (Osprey, White Crown Sparrows) and other wildlife.
* experience the thrill of a new ocean going barge being launched across the river at Gunderson at 11:00am
Bring leather gloves and wear boots or heavy shoes; sponsors will provide lighter latex gloves and garbage bags. Restrooms and refreshments available.
Sponsored by Swan Island Business Association in cooperation with
North Portland Neighborhood Services and npGREENWAY.
