Paddle Trip Volunteers

As a volunteer with our River Experiences program, you will have the opportunity to inspire others to enjoy the recreational and educational opportunities that the Tualatin River provides. Through your own personal experiences and the training we provide, you will become an ambassador for our mission to protect, restore, and enjoy the Tualatin River.

To become a Paddle Trip volunteer, there are three trainings we provide to prepare you before you sign up for your first paddle trip:

  1. Volunteer Orientation - an introduction to Tualatin Riverkeepers' programs, the Tualatin River, and the various volunteer roles.
  2. Paddle Trip Volunteer Training - an introduction to the Tualatin River, the volunteer roles on Paddle Trips, and a brief review of our fleet and paddle equipment.
  3. Equipment & Procedures - participate in a riverside launch site training that will cover the use of our trailers, equipment, boats, paddling gear, and trip procedures and responsibilities that are required on each outing.

For any questions about Paddle Volunteering, whether it be time commitments, expectations, or the potential roles that volunteers will have, please contact Mark at mark@tualatinriverkeepers.org.
