The Salmon Drift Creek Watershed Council (www.salmondrift.org) will be holding a Salmon River cleanup event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Saturday, Oct. 2.
People of all ages who are willing to help out with this effort to keep the river clean and healthy should meet and check in at Knight Park, which is located at 2341 N Three Rocks Road, north of Lincoln City. Volunteers will be directed to fishing spots for cleanup — they will need to be able to drive from the meeting location to the cleanup locations along the Salmon River. Volunteers may bring their own powerboats or kayaks for on-river cleanup. Popular fishing spots will also be cleaned up by volunteers on foot. Free parking is available at Knight Park, and there are also public restrooms at that location.
A mask or other face covering is required during check-in and at any time when social distancing is not possible. Those taking part are also encouraged to bring their own gloves and water bottles to help reduce plastic waste. SOLVE will provide vinyl disposable gloves onsite.
