Opportunity Details

Litter Cleanup

Age Minimum (with Adult): 18+, Minimum Age:18+

Audrey McCall Beach - Human Access Project - Swimming Hole July Cleanup!

 

 



Join together with the Human Access Project, the Central Eastside Industrial Council, Solve and community members to clean up Audrey McCall beach on the Willamette River. Volunteers will gather at Audrey McCall Beach to check-in, get litter gear and then head out to pick up trash and rocks that have migrated to the beach. Look for jagged rocks both small and big that have migrated to the beach and put them back on the bank.  This makes our beach look beachier and improves shallow water habitat for juvinille Salmon.  

Events at Audrey McCall beach will now only be available to volunteers 18 and older due to to an increased presence of hazardous materials. We will be picking up trash that are adjacent to active encampments. Safety guidelines will be put in place before the cleanup begins.

Bring a swimsuit! After the cleanup we can all take a dip and admire our great work!

Let’s come together and make a real impact for the river and the community!

What’s Provided: We will provide all volunteers with trash grabbers, trash bags, and works gloves.

What to Bring: All volunteers must wear a MASK! Please also come wearing comfortable closed-toed shoes and your own pair of work gloves if you have them. We recommend bringing a filled reusable water bottle and if you are bringing anything else pack them in a backpack to keep your hands-free during events. Please also dress for the weather.

Parking: Take public transit if possible. Some parking is available in the nearby business district or in downtown Portland across the river.


Bathrooms: There are no public restrooms at this location. Please plan accordingly.

Accessibility: The check-in area is in a place that is wheelchair accessible. Much of the cleanup work will take place on a beach that is not ADA accessible. A person could check-in and collect litter along the Esplanade and nearby city streets, which are accessible, although they would be working away from the group. Please reach out if you have any questions or a need for accommodations. We will do our best to support you.

Youth Volunteers: Children are welcome if accompanied by an attentive adult. Youth volunteers ages 14-17 will have to have their guardians sign a separate youth waiver form if they are attending a SOLVE event without a guardian. Find the link to youth waiver form here.
Youth Waiver Form or here SOLVE | Volunteer Group Guide (solveoregon.org)
