Clean up Lower Breitenbush Hot Springs, Cleator Bend Day Use Area, and nearby dispersed recreation sites. We also drain, scrub, and refill the hot spring ruins.

Earth Day, April 22nd, is the primary cleanup day.
Registration opens at 9 am and continues throughout the day. We ask that you volunteer for at least two hours.
Organizers will be camped at the registration location throughout the weekend of April 21-23, and we welcome you to come prepared and camp the entire weekend. We welcome any additional help throughout the weekend beyond the minimum of a few hours.
Lower Breitenbush Hot Springs is not Breitenbush Hot Springs Retreat & Conference Center.
Lower Breitenbush Hot Springs are public lands administered by Detroit Ranger District, Willamette National Forest.
The Lower Breitenbush Hot Springs parking lot, registration, and camp area were unaffected by the 2020 Oregon Wildfires. Across the river, there were low-intensity fires.
The Breitenbush River is listed in the Adopt-A-River program by the Oregon Marine Board.
