Dig in with SOLVE this year at restoration and cleanup sites across the Portland-metro area. Get your hands dirty planting native trees, removing invasive species, and helping restore critical habitat for native plants and wildlife. Over time, this work will improve water quality, create wildlife habitat, and store carbon to slow climate change.
These are family-friendly events and all ages are welcome. Plus, it’s a great way to earn community service hours. Project dates and times will vary and events happen rain or shine. All tools, gloves, and supplies will be provided.
