Celebrate Earth Day by taking care of our beautiful state! The idea of people coming together on Earth Day to take care of and celebrate our planet began more than 45 years ago. Since then, SOLVE IT for Earth Day has grown into Oregon's largest Earth Day service event by providing a hands-on approach with this worldwide day of service.
