Solve Volunteers to meet at Tolovana Wayside for 9/19 Beach Cleanup
Guests of Tolovana Inn who join the Solve clean-up at the adjacent Tolovana Wayside will be eligible for a discount for the September 18-19 weekend.
Volunteers will gather on Saturday, September 19, from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm, as part of the annual Beach & Riverside Cleanup and the International Coastal Cleanup, a world-wide effort to keep our beaches healthy.
Beach captains will direct all volunteers. SOLVE will provide bags and gloves. Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own reusable bucket/bag. Volunteers are also asked to bring an old colander or a kitty litter scoop to sift the sand for small items, like tiny bits of plastic and cigarette butts which are extremely harmful to shore birds and marine life.
Dress for the weather, rain of shine. And, bring you own reusable water bottle.
Volunteers can Pre Register with Solve here or show up before 10am on Saturday.
Call Tolovana Inn directly to make your room reservation and be sure to mention that you are a SOLVE Beach Cleanup Volunteer to be eligible for special rates.
SOLVE has been around, and doing good, for decades. The organization originally was called S.O.L.V. (Stop Oregon Litter and Vandalism) and was created by Governor Tom McCall and other community leaders in 1969 to address the need for community action in the ever-growing state. Today SOLVE continues to build on that vision to improve the environment of Oregon and build a legacy of stewardship.
Annually, SOLVE mobilizes over 35,000 volunteers and organizes over 1,000 cleanup and restoration projects throughout the state.
