Sherwood's SOLVE IT for Oregon/Trashpalooza

SOLVE IT for Earth Day (Trashpalooza! Sherwood) has made a few changes this year. We are happy to announce this event has shifted to SOLVE IT for Oregon! Join a small, community volunteer event, and celebrate Oregon and the planet between August 1st and August 15th. Join us as we celebrate 50 years of Earth Day by joining small, neighborhood and individual efforts to improve the environment this August!

Register online and contact Tammy Steffens (steffenst@sherwoodoregon.gov) to receive your own "kit" with necessary supplies.

Participate anytime between August 1st and August 15th to be a part of this statewide days of service for the natural areas and neighborhoods that make this place home. Commit to join us today! Talk a walk around your neighborhood and pick up litter you find along the way. This can be once during that time period or every day. Go with your family or by yourself. Every little bit helps.

Why we care

Together, with volunteers and partners across Oregon and around the world, we can reduce the harmful impacts of litter and invasive plants to keep our communities and natural environments healthy. Litter and invasive plants are harmful to wildlife, water quality, and human health.

  • Plastics are found inside the bodies of almost every animal species studied so far. By picking up the plastic upstream, our oceans and animals will collect less plastic.
  • Invasive plants are considered a greater threat to native biodiversity than pollution, harvest, and disease combined. By removing invasive plants, we give our native plants and wildlife a chance to thrive.

Be prepared to volunteer!

  • Wear sturdy shoes.
  • Dress for the weather and be prepared for August sunshine.
  • Contact Tammy Steffens (steffenst@sherwoodoregon.gov) if to receive your own "kit" with necessary supplies.
  • Stay hydrated with your filled, reusable water bottle!
