Over the past decade, Oregon has attracted global attention as a center for design and innovation, much of it deeply committed to social good. On Wednesday, June 6, at the Mercy Corps Action Center in Portland, you'll get to hear first-hand how our unique creative community is addressing some of the world's most pervasive humanitarian issues: clean water! It's a story about Oregon's creative strengths, and a window into the future of design in the Pacific Northwest.
This FREE film festival hosted by Delta Energy Club will feature three documentary films, include question & answer sessions with energy experts, have informational booths, and feature discounted admission to The Discovery Center. The goal is to raise awareness and promote discussion about clean-energy options for our country and our children. Come to this renewable energy (RE) film festival to learn about new technology, meet others interested in RE, and talk about solutions for our energy future!

Save the date for SOLV’s Beach and Riverside Cleanup, presented by the Oregon Lottery, on Saturday, September 17th! Thousands of volunteers will clean up trash and remove invasive plants from Oregon’s coastline and along rivers, creeks and lakes in Oregon and SW Washington. This work will improve the quality of water that we all drink, and use for recreation and agriculture.
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.

Plant native trees and shrubs with SOLV in Gladstone at Goat Island on Saturday, February 26th! We will be working along the Clackamas River from 9:00am to 12:00pm rain or shine, and all tools, gloves and supplies will be provided. By planting native trees and shrubs, volunteers will be lowering stream temperatures and creating an ecosystem that will filter polluted stormwater runoff, improve water quality, provide better habitat for wildlife, and be more resilient to climate change.
