Community Events

Rogue River Clean Up:

Our community is committed to keeping our rivers clean so we can protect and restore them for us – and future generations. Less trash in and around rivers provides our communities with clean and safe places to walk, to run trails, and to paddle in clean waters. The recreational impacts that surround a clean river also provide our community with increased tourism, affecting both our economy and well-being. During this annual event, local school kids ride in boats on the river to clean up gravel bars, while the general public helps with beach cleanups and invasive weed removal. The day culminates in a Celebration BBQ at the Quosatana Campground, where we have the Salmon Tent, Smokey the Bear, games, water quality stations, adult education and more!

The Monarch Festival

The YEP works with volunteers to lead a life-size butterfly life cycle station at the annual Monarch Festival, held in Brookings, OR. Visitors of all ages are invited to make the beautiful metamorphosis into an adult butterfly, and then parade around the festival wearing butterfly wings.

Party in the Park

Curry Watersheds Partnership staff engages youth from the Gold Beach community to lead a fun, educational booth each year designed to delight and inform young learners about their world. Previous themes included: Power of the Pollinators game, Little Bo Peep’s sheep and water quality model, and Underwater Engineering with PVC and ROV’s; Always hands-on, always educational!

Redfish Rocks on the Docks

This is a community event in Port Orford, celebrating the Redfish Rocks Marine Reserve and community’s dedication to clean water, local economy and stewardship. The CWP’s Stream Trailer is an excellent tool we deploy to teach about non-point source pollution run-off, best management practices, and how it affects aquatic life in rivers and in the near-shore marine habitats.

Earth Day at Dragonfly Farm

A local event at a family-run plant nursery in the Langlois community. The Stream Trailer makes special appearances to celebrate our one Earth, its diversity of life, while also sharing ways to protect it.
