Columbia Slough Regatta 2015

Sunday August 02, 9:00am - 1:00pm

Join our on-the-water festival and celebrate the Columbia Slough!  The Columbia Slough Regatta returns for its 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 Multnomah County Drainage District (1880 NE Elrod Drive) on Sunday, August 2nd 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. Keep an eye out for 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.

Want to volunteer for the Regatta? Email hanna.davis@columbiaslough.org for more information.
