SOLVE is a local non-profit based in Portland, our mission is to bring Oregonians together to enhance our environment and create a legacy of stewardship. We achieve this by facilitating close to 1,000 volunteer lead projects across the state with a huge number happening here in the Portland Area. Close to 300 of these projects happen on one of these two dates and involve litter cleanup, invasive plant removal and planting native plants for watershed restoration.
