Portland's contribution to the 350 movement was a sight to be seen. Over 150 determined Portlanders formed the image of "350" by combining kayaks, canoes, stand up boards, a small sail boat, row boat, rafts, and other paddled craft in the Willamette River proving once and for all that cats can be herded and that the paddling community is strongest when banded together in a fight for a common cause.

Thanks Andy Maeser for all your hard work. Without Andy's motivation and dedication this demonstration would not have happened. Nice work Andy!!
Also, be sure to thank your local paddle-sports businesses and organizations that donated time and boats to make all of this possible with a minimum impact. Alder Creek Kayak and Canoe, Next Adventure, NRG, Willamette Riverkeeper and others brought boats to the event so people had the option of taking public transit, biking, or walking to the site.
Keen Footwear and Wend Magazine were also big contributors to today's efforts. A big thanks goes out to them as well!!
And of course...A thank you to all who volunteered today!! Nice Job Portlanders!
