It’s Rogue For A Reason!
Southern Oregon locals and millions of visitors love the Rogue for its world class fishing and rafting, but even lovers seem to leave trash in their wake. Over 800 volunteers collect more than 140 yards of trash and recyclables every year. By land and boat there are more than a dozen independently organized annual cleanups on the Rogue River and its tributaries. We’ve found boats on steep mountainsides 100 feet above spawning grounds for wild fish, and tractor tires deep in the river. Volunteers range from preschoolers to the very young at heart. They can use your help not only to clean up the trash but to engage the community in preventing trash problems. Feeding all of these fantastic volunteers takes time and money, and dump fees are enormous.
Your donation will be used for all these things so we can make these cleanups successful, growing our traditions of stewardship for the majestic Rogue Basin. Both staff and volunteers will thank you for your support and be encouraged by knowing that folks who can’t physically join us have also contributed to the health of this region. Your donation will be doubled by a 1:1 match during this campaign!
