Plant native trees and shrubs in the Portland area this fall with SOLV. We have plantings every from October to March Saturday from 9 am to 12pm. SOLV provides all the tools and gloves as well as the plants - you just show up! By planting native trees and shrubs volunteers will be lowering stream temperatures and creating and ecosystem that will filter polluted stormwater runoff, improve water quality, provide better habitat for wildlife, and be more resilient to climate change.
Do you enjoy working with volunteers, planting trees, creating habitat and learning more about how watersheds work? Consider becoming a SOLV Stream Team Captain. SOLV is hosting at Stream Team Captain Training on August 23rd and 25th from 6 to 9:00pm and August 27th from 9 am to 3 pm. The training will take place at the Tryon Creek State Park nature center.
Join West Linn High School teacher Jim Hartmann as he shares his knowledge of the common birds found at SOLV restoration sites, why they are important to a healthy ecosystem, and how they can be identified. Come early and enjoy some food and a drink at the Bridgeport Brewery.

Improve water quality and habitat with SOLV at Willow Creek in Beaverton on Saturday, July 16th from 9 am to 12 pm. SOLV has been working with students from Rachel Carson Environmental Middle School for the past seven years to restore Willow Creek. Take a look at what the students have accomplished and come install coffee bags and mulch the recently planted native trees and shrubs. SOLV will provide tools and gloves for the project, but be sure to wear closed toed shoes or rubber boots if you have them and to dress for the weather.
