Want to help improve Portlands most centrally located downtown beach on the Willamette River?
Volunteers are invited to help Unrock the Bowl Saturday, July 12, at Gov. Tom McCall Waterfront Park, when theyll be lifting rocks out of the sandy area just north of Riverplace Marina and south of the Hawthorne bridge.
The event lasts from noon to 5 p.m., and will include food, drinks and a party afterward.
Its sponsored by the Human Access Project, sponsor of the annual Big Float event across the river. Volunteers have gradually tidied up the bowl area to make it more inviting for swimming or just laying in the sun.
Volunteers can just show up, or they can RSVP in advance at www.facebook.com/events/625564347479516/
