Opportunity Details

Cathedral Park Beach Cleanup - South of Fishing Dock

Saturday, September 16th from 3:30-6pm 
join Human Access Project and SOLVE for a large-scale cleanup at the Cathedral Park Beach. Let's leave this iconic Portland location spotless. Human Access Project endeavors to make all Portland beaches and swimming spots safe, clean, and accessible to everyone. We hope you can join us and help us make a difference. We will be picking up the rocks and concrete chunks on the beach of all sizes to improve access into the water. Many hands make light work, this is an opportunity to make a major improvement to St. John's iconic riverfront park and getting it ready for swimming next summer.

Thank you to Hanna Andersson for their generous sponsorship of this site!
