Thank you for your interest in leading a volunteer event with SOLVE!

SOLVE supports projects across Oregon that engage volunteers and focus on one of four main activities:

  • Litter Cleanup
  • Invasive Plant Removal
  • Native Tree & Shrub Planting
  • Maintenance & Monitoring

Lead your event any time of year through our Project Oregon or Oregon Adopt-a-River programs. Or join hundreds of other projects statewide during SOLVE IT for Earth Day in April or the Beach & Riverside Cleanup in September.

SOLVE offers free cleanup supplies and volunteer recruitment assistance to all SOLVE Event Leaders. Every successful project begins with a vision and effective planning. SOLVE equips Event Leaders with project planning assistance to assure that your event is the best it can be and will achieve your project goals.

Ready to get started?

After you create a leader log-in and your project is approved, SOLVE will provide you with project resources, and a link to the electronic Project Handbook, a comprehensive, step-by-step planning guide to help you organize your community event.
