Columbia Slough Regatta 2014
Sunday August 03, 1:00pm - 3:00pm
20th Annual Columbia Slough Regatta
Join our on-the-water festival and celebrate the Columbia Slough! The Columbia Slough Regatta returns for its twentieth annual festival in honor of Portland’s hidden waterway. This wetland waterway provides important habitat for bald eagles, turtles, fish, and otters, as well as enthusiastic kayakers and canoeists.
At this year’s Regatta, over 400 people will meet at the Multnomah County Drainage Districts Launch on Sunday, August 3rd to launch into the safe slack water of the Columbia Slough. Despite the name, the Columbia Slough Regatta is not actually a race, more of a leisurely wildlife-watching group paddle. Wildlife paddlers should keep an eye out for include, Great Blue Heron, Osprey, Western Painted Turtle, Beavers and more!
Individuals and families are welcome to bring their own boat. A donation of $8.00/person is requested. No one is turned away.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED for this event. To volunteer, email: email@example.com or call (503) 281-1132.
