Participate in Earth Day in Oregon
SOLVE IT for Earth Day invites everyone to participate in environmental volunteerism on Saturday, April 22.
The idea is to hook-up with local events and activities to make a difference. Check-out the website and join other Oregonians on this monumental day.
The idea of people coming together on Earth Day to take care of and celebrate our planet began more than 45 years ago and was a perfect fit for SOLVE and our volunteers. 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.
Over the past 27 years more than 112,000 volunteers have removed 15 million pounds of litter and invasive plants from illegal dumpsites, neighborhoods, and natural areas as part of this global event.
