Join us in making Portland a better place!

Getting There/ Parking: Walking/biking/taking Trimet to the event is encouraged. Free parking is available on the street, in front of the park. We will be focusing on the business district and surrounding neighborhood, but if you do bring a vehicle we will be distributing people throughout St. Johns to maximize our impact. A vehicle would help in hauling the trash back to the park, or we will go grab any bags that you need to leave if walking.

What's Provided: Heavy-duty garbage bags, litter grabbers, and vinyl gloves are provided to all participants that need them.

What to Bring: Please come wearing closed-toed shoes and bring a filled reusable water bottle. If you have your own gloves, litter grabber, litter bag or bucket, you are encouraged to bring those as well.

Restrooms: There is not public restroom at the park, so please plan accordingly.
