Your Vision. Your Community.

SOLVE supports community members in organizing impactful volunteer projects throughout the region that engage volunteers in litter abatement, and habitat restoration such as invasive plant removal, native plantings, and maintenance of plantings. Projects begin with your vision and take place in your community.


Anytime, Anywhere

SOLVE provides help with project planning and volunteer recruitment, a comprehensive planning guide, and project supplies (litter bags, gloves, safety vests, first aid kits, education boards, hazardous waste containers, and more). Small grants are also available for approved supplies.


Habitat Restoration 

Natural area stewardship is an act of love for the environment. Restoration is lifelong in any given natural area and requires the entire community to be involved and invested. If you would like to begin a restoration project or get involved in one you've seen in your community, we have resources and support to help. Whether invasive weed removal, native planting, or maintenance and monitoring of natural areas, we are here to help your community become invested in the stewardship of Oregon's natural areas.


Litter Cleanups 

Make a positive difference in the health and cleanliness of your community by preventing unwanted litter from entering our waterways and environment. 


Beach Cleanups

Oregon's beaches need your help year-round!  Our coastline is heavily impacted by litter and marine debris during the winter and spring.  Storms and king tides bring in tons of debris and a continuous effort is needed to maintain clean and healthy beaches. Sign up to become an Event Leader to make a difference for our oceans. 



Becoming an event leader is easy! The first step is registering for an account with SOLVE. Once you are logged in, you will see a form in the section below with a few short questions that will help us in getting you started. If you have questions about how to create an event, including what resources and support is available, contact Emily Berend at
