30th Discovery Day

Celebrate our 30th Annual Tualatin River Discovery Day!

Join Tualatin Riverkeepers for a paddle trip down the beautiful Tualatin River as we mark another major milestone.

The event starts with a Celebration of our 30 year history, recognition of our founders, and cake for all. Boats will then launch at 15 minute intervals from 8:45am to 11:30am and participants will paddle downriver to Metro’s Borland Field Station on Borland Road near the Stafford Road bridge over the Tualatin. Bathrooms, fresh watermelon, and representatives from our sponsoring organizations will be there to greet you at the takeout and the Riverkeepers will provide a complimentary shuttle back to the parking site (Tualatin Community Park) for participants.

This self-guided 3 mile paddle hosted by Tualatin Riverkeepers includes a guidebook highlighting wildlife and history specific to this section of the river. The trip will launch at the Tualatin Community Park boat launch. Our volunteer safety boats will be stationed along the route to ensure a safe event. The first Tualatin River Discovery Day was organized to raise awareness of the Tualatin River, its wildlife and the health of the water, environment and people. Tualatin Riverkeepers is proud that this tradition has continued on, giving thousands of paddlers a chance to explore the Tualatin River.

This paddle trip is designed for first time paddlers, families with children, experienced paddlers – everyone is welcome. Participants can rent a canoe, single or double kayak (including life jackets and paddles) for $35 or may bring their own for no cost.

Discovery Day sells out every year. Reserve your launch time today!

Event volunteers are needed for a variety of volunteer roles.
