Take Care of Your Community

Join thousands of volunteers on September 23 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. Volunteer registration will open in late July!
