River Appreciation Day-UPDATE!!!

July 17, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Jack Fire is so close to the Steamboat Ball Field that the fire crews are utilizing the space and we will be unable to hold our event where we had planned. THEREFORE,

we will gather instead at 1:00pm next Saturday July 17 at Whistler’s Bend Park Day Use Area near the river where we have held the event several times in the past.  And instead of a full amplified stage with featured acts, we are asking any of our members and friends who are musicians to bring their instruments for a River Appreciation Day Song Circle!  We will circle our lawn chairs and take turns performing songs and leading sing-alongs with everyone encouraged to participate.  We will also do a drum circle in memory of David Parker, long-time Umpqua Watersheds member and drummer extraordinaire, so bring something to bang on!
Bring your chairs, some food and refreshments, games, musical instruments, and your positive attitude because nothing will keep us from appreciating the river.

Get ready for a fun day of music at Steamboat Ball Field. You can swim in the river, hike the trails, and camp in the Umpqua National Forest.

Festivities start at 1 pm. Vaccines against covid-19 highly recommended. Those without a vaccination should wear face coverings and social distance. Respectful appreciation of the health and welfare of other attendees is much appreciated.

More information will be added here as we set up activities and events.

Donations are much appreciated.

No running water at the venue so be sure and bring liquid refreshments.
