Waterway Cleanup Series highlights cleanliness of our rivers, streams, and creeks

SOLVE and Clackamas Water Environment Services team up to support litter cleanup projects across the region from May to September.

SOLVE volunteers in bright vests use trash grabbers to pick up litter along the picturesque Willamette River.

On May 9, a team of 36 volunteers removed 100 pounds of trash from the Willamette River.

Oh clean water, keep on flowin’ — that’s the theme song for SOLVE and Clackamas Water Environement Services’ collaborative Waterway Cleanup Series, running now to September.

It’s a call for individuals, businesses, community groups, and organizations to host their own litter cleanups along our region’s rivers, streams, and creeks this summer. There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer or even lead events.

On Saturday, June 1, families are invited to Watershed Discovery Day at Mill Park in Milwaukie. From 9 to 11 a.m., volunteers will pitch in to clean up Johnson Creek with fun picnic activities and raffle prizes to follow.
