As some of you may have noticed, our Portland Event page is new and improved which makes tracking our calendar and signing up for upcoming events easier! Here’s an event to mark your calendars for..

On Saturday, Feb. 11, from 10 am – noon there is going to be a beach cleanup and HOTYB canister installation party @ Broughton Beach along the Columbia River close to the Portland International Airport.

We will be installing FIVE canisters purchased by our new partner Metro. Broughton Beach is frequented year-round by families with dogs and children in no small part because it boasts a clear-shot view of Mt. Hood, and is a sandy and accessible stretch along the beautiful Columbia. However, its appeal is diminished by litter such as cigarette butts (the greatest offense) along the shore. We hope these canisters will reduce the number of butts found on the beach as part of our growing Hold Onto Your Butts program.

Oh and last thing, Salty’s will be providing hot cocoa and clam chowder as well for all volunteers. Hope to see you on the 11th! Event link for details and to RSVP here.
