30th Annual SOLVE Beach Cleanup

SOLVE announces they are now accepting applications from volunteers for community projects in support of the 30th Annual Beach and Riverside Cleanup. Projects will take place across the state on Saturday, September 27th from 10am to 1pm. The deadline for applications is Friday, June 27th.

In celebration of the event’s 30th Anniversary, National Public Lands Day and the International Coastal Cleanup, the SOLVE Beach and Riverside Cleanup supports Oregonians who help take care of parks, waterways and neighborhoods by picking up trash, pulling invasive weeds, planting trees and taking care of watersheds. SOLVE is also seeking volunteers to help coordinate beach cleanup sites on the day of the event.

Volunteer leaders will be provided with free project planning assistance and training, event flyers and pre-event publicity, online volunteer registration, and cleanup project supplies. SOLVE also has a limited number of small grants of up to $100 for reimbursement of qualifying project expenses. Visit solveoregon.org to apply online or call SOLVE for a hard copy form at 503-844-9571 x317 or 1-800-333-SOLV (toll-free in Oregon).

SOLVE is a state-wide non-profit organization that brings Oregonians together to improve the environment and build a legacy of stewardship. Since 1969, the organization has grown from a small, grassroots group to a national model for volunteer action. Today, SOLVE mobilizes and trains tens of thousands of volunteers across Oregon to clean up our beaches and rivers, and restore watersheds. Visit solveoregon.org for more information.
