SOLVE IT for Earth Day

Saturday 20 April 2019, 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM
4356 NE Marine Drive, Portland, OR 97211

As the number of people visiting and moving to our beautiful state continues to grow, it has become more important than ever to keep it clean and healthy! Let's come together to make this Earth Day the largest ever, picking up litter, removing invasive plants, and planting native trees and shrubs across Oregon. Together we can make sure Oregon can remain the amazing place we all love. In 1990, SOLVE IT for Earth Day took root in the Greater Portland-Metro area, fusing our hands-on approach with this worldwide day of service. Since then, SOLVE IT for Earth Day has grown into Oregon's largest Earth Day service event. This post shows just one cleanup you can join. Click through to see many others.
