As the number of people visiting and moving to our beautiful state continues to grow, it has become more important than ever to keep it clean and healthy! Let's come together to make this Earth Day the largest ever, picking up litter, removing invasive plants, and planting native trees and shrubs across Oregon. Together we can make sure Oregon can remain the amazing place we all love.
Projects will take place on Saturday, April 22, 2017, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (times can vary by project). In addition, projects involving students will occur the week before and the week after the Saturday event.
Last year, more than 7,300 volunteers turned out across the state at over 165 sites, removing 47 tons of tires, and clearing 14 acres of non-native invasive plants. We anticipate similar numbers for 2017.
