Just a couple of days after the Pollinator Corridor planting event, nearly 40 volunteers came out to help clean up Peace Memorial Park, the Eastbank Esplanade, and the areas around Moda Center, the Convention Center, and the southwest section of the Lloyd neighborhood. Together we collected around 500 pounds of trash! We were excited that so many volunteers showed up, despite what looked to be a rainy morning. Luckily the sun remained out for most of it and we had a great time meeting many of you. Thank you to RWDI who recruited a team of employees to attend!

A special thank you to SOLVE for continuing to be great partners and providing bags and litter grabbers, the Oregon Convention Center for disposing of all the trash we gathered, and a very big thank you to Metro’s Regional Refresh Fund for helping to fund our community-led cleanup efforts in Lloyd.
