PGE Community Cleanup at Elk Rock Island!
Join together with PGE and SOLVE for a community service event! We’re working to keep the parks, streets, and natural areas of Milwaukie clean by picking up litter before it washes into our local waterways. Elk Rock Island and Spring Park Natural Area are right next door to one of PGE's Smart Grid Test Bed neighborhoods, and we could use your help with taking care of this area. Let’s make a difference for the ecosystem and keep Milwaukie clean to ensure it can be enjoyed by all.
