Spring SOLVE Oregon Beach CleanupPresented by AAA Oregon - Saturday, April 1

Each spring, SOLVE volunteers travel from all over the state to help out at one of 45 coastal cleanup sites during the Spring Oregon Beach Cleanup. From Fort Stevens State Park near Astoria to Harris Beach State Park in Brookings, thousands of volunteers scour the coastline each year to protect our oceans, wildlife and coastal economies.

SOLVE IT for Earth Day, Presented by Portland General Electric  - Saturday, April 22

Oregon's Largest Earth Day Event. Each year, more than 7,000 volunteers turn out for SOLVE IT for Earth Day at over 165 sites, including neighborhoods, parks, schools and natural areas around the state to make a difference for Earth Day!

SOLVE Beach & Riverside Cleanup, Presented by the Oregon Lottery - Saturday, September 24

Join thousands of volunteers on September 24 as we take care of Oregon's neighborhoods, parks, and natural areas! It's an easy, fun way to get outside, meet your neighbors, and make a difference by cleaning up litter and marine debris, removing invasive plants, or planting native trees and shrubs at project sites along the entire coast and across the state. Part of the International Coastal Cleanup and the National Public Lands Day, the SOLVE Beach & Riverside Cleanup has been a family-friendly Oregon tradition since 1984.

Project Oregon - Year-round

Our most flexible program, Project Oregon allows leaders across the state to organize an event anytime, anywhere. SOLVE's Project Oregon program supports Oregonians in organizing impactful volunteer projects throughout our state that engage volunteers in restoration and cleanup efforts. Projects begin with your vision and take place in your community. Project Oregon supports projects that include litter cleanup, invasive plant removal, planting of native trees and shrubs, and monitoring and maintenance of restoration sites.

Oregon Adopt-A-River - Year-round

Oregon Adopt-A-River, a partnership between SOLVE and the Oregon State Marine Board, supports individuals and organizations in cleaning and preserving their favorite stretch of waterway (river, lake or stream) anywhere in the state of Oregon, while focusing on watershed health and a good stewardship ethic. Participants can improve their local waterway by picking up trash, removing non-native invasive plants, or both! The commitment is for 2 years doing at least 2 cleanups or invasive plant removal events per year. Many volunteers do much more!
