Sept. 22 (Sat.) Willamette Coast Fork Cleanup wirh Coast Fork Willamette Watershed Council
See and details on Calendar
"We want to float a section of the Coast Fork Willamette River and pick up trash.
In early June we floated from Row River Nature Park to Lynx Hollow Park, so we would like to pick up trash in the downstream sections as far downstream as Mt. Pisgah (the exact locations are still TBD - any suggestions?)
We would love to partner with local paddling groups to make this a highly visible event and to pool resources in order to get more watershed council supporters out on the river and to get the river cleaned up."
Event coordinator: Mark Murphy

Meeting, Monday, Nov 8, 2010, 7 PM, Davis Restaurant (Eugene, Broadway & Olive St.)
Agenda: Continue club discussion and trip planning, followed by Show&Tell, that's slides&talk.

Meeting, Monday, Oct 18, 2010, 7 PM, South Eugene High School, Rm 202
Agenda: Club discussion, trip planning, presentation.
Horst Lueck will show slides from some "Central Oregon Waters Less Paddled", and roads less taken.
Most of the waters covered are lakes, but there will be short sequences from the Crooked River below Prineville Reservoir and the John Day between the town of John Day to the confluence with the North Fork.
The latter (RM 247.0 to 184.5) has enough material to fill an entire evening, but Horst will throw in just enough pics to make you want to run some of it, and to stay away from other segments.
