On Saturday it’s supposed to be a pretty nice day.  Some sunshine, highs in the 60’s.  Perfect day to get some dirt under your finger nails and mingle with your neighbors.

Every Earth Day, SOLV organizes dozens of SOLV IT volunteer programs around the state.  There are 120 sites in Clackamas, Multnomah, Washington, Columbia and Yamhill counties this year, all of which were designed by volunteers or local businesses.  Projects run from cleaning up illegal dumpsites to tidying up the local school playground.  Nancy Wilmes, a program coordinator with SOLV IT, says the personal nature of each program (picking up the trash from your kids playground or sweeping away the mud from your street) are what make the program so successful.
