2020 Green Heron Virtual Gala

Thank you all for attending our first-ever Green Heron Virtual Gala! We hope you enjoyed it, and remember that you can donate to our Special Appeal through Friday October 2nd, at 12:00PM.

-------------------------------

Join us virtually for this special free event as we celebrate our 31st year dedicated to protecting and restoring the Tualatin River. We'll also be celebrating the many accomplishments we've made in expanding and growing our educational efforts, introducing new paddlers to the tranquility of the river, and continuing to be a strong voice for the river, even through COVID-19.

The Livestream Auction Event on September 26th will be hosted by Metro Councilor Juan Carlos González, with Marquam Auction Agency Auctioneer Eva Ponce. All proceeds will support the programs and projects of Tualatin Riverkeepers. We will also be honoring this year's Green Heron Award winner, Bob Baumgartner, who currently serves as Clean Water Services (CWS) Regulatory Affairs Director, working to enhance the environment and quality of life in the Tualatin River watershed through visionary and collaborative management of water resources in partnership with others.
