the scoop:

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 the St Johns Launch (9387 N Columbia Blvd) on Sunday, August 7th 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/person is requested. No one is turned away
