Happy Earth Day!

Earth Day is April 22, 2022!

Earth Day provides a great opportunity to reflect on the planet we all love and share.  One of the biggest threats to our natural systems is from the threat of invasive species.  The introduction and unchecked spread of invasive weeds disrupts food webs and cause a collapse of our natural systems.  So one great way to celebrate this Earth Day is by lending a helping hand to restore the health of our natural areas .  There are events going on throughout Clackamas County and across the state.  So show your Earth Day spirit by volunteering or committing to volunteer at an upcoming community event near you!

Earth Day events activities can include everything from pulling invasive weeds, planting native trees and shrubs, picking up litter, or surveying and exploring natural areas. Equipment and refreshments are often provided, but check specific event for details.  We recommend visiting the SOLVE event calendar for opportunities near you.

Local watershed councils also frequently host events, so check in with your local watershed council to see if there are additional opportunities to share.

Register today for an adventure in volunteering that will connect you with other eager land stewards and make our community a healthier place to live.

Many thanks to all of our regional partners for their part in coordinating these local events!
