Join our paddle team! Each year the Columbia Slough Watershed Council hosts dozens of educational paddling events that expose adults and children to the wonders of the Columbia Slough. We’re seeking paddlers who would like to volunteer to assist with our Evening Canoe paddles, Slough School kids’ paddles and our summer festivals - no experience necessary!
As a member of the Paddle Team you will be contributing to a growing program that strives to engage communities in Fairview, Gresham and Portland to learn about, enjoy, and assist with restoration efforts of their local watershed and natural areas.
Volunteers are expected to commit to a minimum of 5 programs over the paddle season (May through September).
Before serving, volunteers attend two orientation sessions:
Training Session 1: Thursday, April 13th, 2017, 6:00pm - 9:00pm
Training Session 2: Saturday, April 15th, 2017, 9:00am - 3:00pm
