Opportunity Details

Urgent Needs: Columbia Slough






 



Join SOLVE near 87th and Marx Dr for a cleanup in an urgent-need area near the Columbia Slough. 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. Safety guidelines will be put in place before the cleanup begins.

During this cleanup, you will work with SOLVE staff in a small group to clean up piles of trash along the road near the slough. We will be meeting at Ventura Foods LLC in their parking lot. This project has been funded in part by a grant from Travel Oregon.


When: Saturday, September 25nd, 2021, 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM.
