Swan Island Boat Ramp Clean Up (Se habla español)

 






Join together with SOLVE and to take care of a little known boat ramp on the Willamette River. Hidden in a quiet corner of Swan Island, the Swan Island Boat Ramp offers public access to the water and a small stretch of beach on a sheltered cove. Help remove harmful plastic litter from the beach before the wind and rain carry it out to sea.
Collecting trash improves water quality and protects wildlife from entanglement and mistaking litter for food. Sign up today to have a positive impact on our community and our ecosystem.
