November 7th, 8:30 - 3 pm

Check-in at the Boat Ramp (44.048921, -116.974000)


This will not be a group gathering. In your own vehicle and passengers, drive to the Recreation Site for check-in, sign a waiver, get some gear, and be on your own to pick up garbage wherever you can! Garbage bags can be dropped at the check-in. 


plenty of water for you and your passengers, proper clothing for the weather and terrain (shoes or boots instead of open-toe), trash bags, and gloves. Though we are physically distancing, please also bring your regular personal protection equipment (mask and other). Handsanitizer will be available on site.


Garbage in waterways, yuck! Ontario Recreation Site is on the Snake River and unfortunately a lot of garbage from travelers, the interstate, or accidental blow-aways get scattered. Citizens have taken notice and we are calling the Friends of the Owyhee to descend on the place with a helping hand! Have a watercraft? Pluck trash out of the river!

Cant make it? We understand! Please monitor our Facebook and Website for more upcoming opportunities! All our events are outside and we maintain physical distancing procedures (six feet minimum), only meeting in groups of under 10-individuals in one place.

Please email sammyc@owyheefriends.org for questions!

After party fun?

The Owyhee Paddle Co. has paddleboard and kayak rentals for use on the lake! 

Clean-up participants will receive a discounted rental for the afternoon of the event!
