River Clean Ups

                       Rivers Alive  

The Camden County Extension Agriculture and Natural Resources program hosts two Rivers Alive river cleanups every fall.  One cleanup is in partnership with Crooked River State Park and is held on Your State Parks Day.  Our second cleanup is held in downtown Woodbine along the waterfront and surrounding residential areas where litter is prevalent.  Volunteers receive free t-shirts and prizes are awarded to volunteers with the best finds.  For more information about the Rivers Alive program please see the Rivers Alive website.  For more information about local cleanups organized by the Extension office please contact Agriculture and Natural Resources Agent Jessica Warren.
