SOLV IT Goes Statewide in 2010!

SOLV is excited to announce that its annual Earth Day event, SOLV IT, will be bigger and better than ever in 2010! SOLV IT engages volunteers in cleanup of litter and illegal dumpsites, non-native invasive plant removal, native vegetation planting, and watershed maintenance and monitoring activities.

In the past twenty years, SOLV IT volunteers have removed 7,049 tons of debris from illegal dumpsites, neighborhoods and natural areas. This spring, SOLV projects will take place across the state of Oregon for the first time ever for the 40th Anniversary of the original Earth Day!

On Saturday, April 17th, thousands of volunteers will converge on approximately 125 project sites throughout Oregon and work together to SOLV IT.
