Urgent Needs Cleanup Event at Springwater Corridor Trail near Cartlandia



Join SOLVE and Portland Parks & Rec to help pick up trash on the Springwater Corridor Trail in SE Portland. Picking up litter beautifies and supports safer public spaces and keeps trash out of nearby Johnson Creek.
We will be meeting behind Cartlandia along the Springwater Corridor Trail at 10 am. After volunteers are signed-up, receive equipment, and hear a quick safety briefing, we will then branch out on the trail to collect trash until approximately 1 pm.

SOLVE defines an Urgent Need cleanup as an area with a high concentration of litter that poses a threat to public safety and environmental quality. Urgent Need cleanups are not family friendly or suitable for anyone under the age of 18 due 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.

When: Thursday, July 15, 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM

Advanced Registration: Space is limited and pre-registration is required! Please sign up (Green Button Below) ahead of time so we know how many volunteers to expect.
