Presented by Portland General Electric | April 26th, 2014

Volunteer Registration is now open!

Be a part of the 25th annual SOLVE IT Earth Day event today by visiting the volunteer calendar.

This year SOLVE IT is taking place on 2014 on Saturday, April 26th, 2014 with some projects the weekends before and after the main event.

SOLVE IT, presented by Portland General Electric, is a celebration of Earth Day where volunteers dig in to take care of our parks, neighborhoods and waterways. SOLVE IT began in 1990 to clearn up Portland area neighborhoods and address the problem of illegal dump sites. Since then, volunteers have removed more than 9 million pounds of litter and invasive plants. SOLVE had grown to become one of the largest Earth Day events in the nation. It now incorporates close to 200 projects each year across the state involving more than 6,000 volunteers each year.

Volunteer leaders from Oregon communities come forward annually with their ideas and projects and work with SOLVE to make those ideas a reality. 2014 will mark the 25th Anniversary of this great program and there is still lots of work to do. We can't wait to have you involved. Sign up today to lead a project or to join an existing volunteer event on April 26th!
