The health and safety of Oregon’s communities has always been a priority for SOLVE. Due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19, SOLVE is rescheduling its Spring Oregon Beach Cleanup, presented by AAA, until Sunday, July 5, 2020.
Beach cleanups on July 5 are crucial in removing litter and debris left from 4th of July celebrations. We view this date change as an opportunity to focus on a different challenge facing the health and wellness of the Oregon coast. In addition, SOLVE is excited to expand its partnerships with community leaders who have hosted the annual 5th of July cleanups in the past.
SOLVE recognizes the important role volunteers play in keeping the Oregon coast clean and healthy during the spring season. Removing marine debris and plastics is work that still needs to be done. In lieu of this statewide beach cleanup event in March, we invite all Oregonians to pick up as they go, whether they find themselves on the Oregon Coast or elsewhere. More information will be sent out soon about how volunteers can help our beaches between now and July. Changes to SOLVE’s ongoing projects are ongoing.
