Opportunity Details

Urgent Need Cleanup Event at Foster Floodplain


SOLVE is hosting an Urgent Needs cleanup event starting at the Foster Floodplain Natural Area and we need an amazing group of volunteers to join us.

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 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 parts of SE Foster Road, Springwater Corridor, and the Foster Floodplain starting at NE Foster and 106th. We will be meeting at the Floodplain trail entrance parking lot.

This project has been funded in part by a grant from Travel Oregon.
