Portland Gear x Earth Day Clean-up!

 



Join Portland Gear Thursday, April 22nd for a litter clean up to celebrate our beautiful green planet! 

This Earth Day help us raise awareness about the long-lasting detrimental impacts of trash in not only our beloved city, but also in nature parks and other wild life environments. While there are numerous issues that threaten the environment, there is no better place to start the progress of change than by safely removing litter at the source! 

We will start in Providence park, near the Portland Gear club house, and work our way throughout downtown Portland removing trash as a collective effort with our partners! We know that Portland is a strong and resilient city, and this is an opportunity to come together to make a positive difference in the health and cleanliness of our community. If you are unable to attend, you can still contribute the fight against litter and pollution.

Staggered Check-In: Event check-in will run from 12:00 PM to 12:30 PM. Arrive any time during this window. This will allow for a smaller crowd than checking in all at once. The event will run through 3:00 PM.

The small act of donating can help the organization continue their efforts of environmental activism.
