TILLAMOOK STATE FOREST - The Tillamook-based nonprofit Wilson River Cleanup Group (WRCG) is holding its annual river cleanup September 21, 2019, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

The group wants to make sure the river may be enjoyed by all, so it annually organizes a cleanup day where participants collect garbage and debris before the fall storms and high winds carry them out to the ocean.

WRCG issued a press release thanking the Oregon Department of Forestry for assisting in this year’s effort. 

“We do this every ... year. It’s just nice someone is paying attention as far as away as Banks,” Wilson River Cleanup Group Director Quintin Bauer said.
