Love Your Willamette:

PADDLE & PULL, Corvallis to Albany 

Thursday, July 18th


WHAT: Paddle & Pull on the Willamette

WHEN: Thursday, July 18th from 9:30am - 3:30pm

WHERE: Michaels Landing in Corvallis to Hyak Park in Albany

  • NOTE: If you plan to reserve a seat in a Riverkeeper canoe, meet at Hyak Park at 9:30am (directions here). If you plan to bring your own boat, meet us at Michael's Landing at 10:00am (directions here). 

DETAILS: The Willamette River supports diverse native plant and wildlife populations and provides clean water to Oregonians. Land managers, scientists, and concerned citizens are working together throughout the Willamette Basin to address the growing issue of aquatic invasives. Join staff from Willamette Riverkeeper, Benton SWCD, members from the Willamette Mainstem Cooperative, and members of the Willamette Aquatic Invasive Network for a 9 mile paddle-and-pull outing, launching from Michael's Landing in Corvallis, and taking out at Hyak Park in Albany.

Participants will learn to identify aquatic weeds and effectively hand pull priority aquatic weeds. Paddle your own boat, or reserve a space in a Willamette Riverkeeper canoe. Water Weed Field Guide provided.

BRING: Pack two full water bottles, a warm layer, sun protection (glasses, hat and sunscreen), brown bag lunch, snacks, and closed-toe shoes.
