Join us at the Willamette Falls Locks May 14!

May 6, 2016 by Grant Stevens

Spring has sprung in Oregon and the National Trust is joining with the One Willamette River Coalition to sponsor a work day at the Willamette Falls Navigation Canal and Locks! We’ll mow grass, pull weeds, remove invasive plants, clean gutters, and generally spruce up the park adjacent to the Locks.

What: Willamette Falls Locks Clean-up Work Party

When: Saturday, May 14 from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.; Snacks, bottled water, and lunch will be provided.

RSVP: Space is limited. Please RSVP to and indicate if you are interested in carpooling.

Parking and Directions: Parking is very limited and carpooling or taking TriMet is encouraged. The Locks are adjacent to the West Linn Paper Company, and access to the Locks is from Hwy 43/Willamette Drive, at the west end of the Oregon City Arch Bridge. Park in the West Linn Paper Company Shuttle Truck Parking Lot on the east side of Mill Street; enter the lot by the intersection of Territorial and Mill Street. Walk south to the Security Office, where you will be directed to the work area.

We hope to see you at the Locks on the 14!
