Description

This event is canceled in response to directives by the State of Oregon regarding COVID-19. For more information, please visit portlandoregon.gov/parks/covid-19.


In partnership with SOLVE, Urban Forestry, Bureau of Environmental Services, and the Gateway Area Business Association, we will weed around trees, pick up litter, and clean green streets.

We will start at the Fred Meyer's parking lot (directions below), and then spread out collecting any litter we find. Our hard work will keep harmful litter out of our waterways, protecting wildlife and improving water quality. In addition, we will be pruning suckers off trees to encourage proper spring growth. 

Whats Provided: All cleanup supplies and tools will be provided. Coffee, tea and assorted breakfast pastries. 

Be Prepared: Please bring a filled reusable water bottle, come dressed for the weather, and wear closed-toed shoes.

When: Please arrive at 9:45 to sign-in and enjoy coffee and breakfast treats. Cleanup runs from 10am to 12pm.

Meeting Location: Meet at the south east corner of the Fred Meyer's parking lot on NE 102nd Ave and NE Pacific Street. 

Everyone is welcome. Activities require bending, walking, and lifting less than 10 lbs. Call us if accomodations or translation is needed. 503-823-4964.
