SOLV and Earth Day Cleanups
Port Orford

earthday

 

April 20, 2013

 

Earth Day is Sat., April 20, and volunteers with SOLV are celebrating by cleaning up waterways, trails and public property in coastal communities.

 

In Seaside, volunteers will join the “Scotch Broom Doom” to remove the invasive, yellow flowers.

 

In Port Orford, Driftwood students will volunteer to restore a wetlands behind their school and establish a new trail, while educating others about the benefits of Oregon’s watersheds.

 

Volunteers in Coos Bay will pick up litter and clear invasive species from the Wellbaum Memorial Trail and the Marshfield Pioneer Cemetery.  They’ll also be cataloguing each headstone, photographing them, and removing invasive holly and ivy obscuring the stones.

 

Dozens of projects with SOLV will be held across the state.  This event is sponsored by Portland General Electric.
