Join us to clean a quadrant of our NW Portland neighborhood. We will focus on the area between NW Couch and Lovejoy, and NW 16th Ave to NW 21st. This event will be entirely outdoors and will comply with social distancing guidelines. After a safety talk and getting cleanup supplies, you will spend about an hour picking up litter in the neighborhood to improve our community and protect our ecosystem. Join us in making Portland a better place!
