Introducing a new way to celebrate Earth Day!

SOLVE is excited to launch a brand-new statewide event this April called, Oregon Spring Cleanup, presented by Portland General Electric. As we have for over fifty years, we'll be supporting the efforts of community leaders' around the state who are motivated to take care of their special place in Oregon. This new event has its roots in the Spring Oregon Beach Cleanup (created in 1986) and SOLVE IT for Earth Day (started in 1990). We hope the Oregon Spring Cleanup will become a family tradition for your loved ones to join with other Oregonians in making the state a better place for both humans and wildlife, from Astoria to Brookings, Bandon to Burns, and all points in between.

Volunteers will be able to register online for an Oregon Spring Cleanup project starting in late February. We are currently accepting project applications from past partners and new leaders. If you are an experienced SOLVE project leader and you'd like to lead a litter pickup, beach cleanup, or habitat restoration project between April 10 and April 24, select the 'Create An Event' button below. If you have never led a SOLVE project before but are interested in doing so during this time period, follow the link to 'Become a SOLVE Leader' below. Together, we are taking care of Oregon.
