SOLVE, a state-wide volunteer group, and the Bureau of Land Management are teaming up to remove illegally dumped and littered trash in the Camp Creek area next month. Of particular concern, according to organizers are illegal dump sites that could transfer leached toxins into the creek, the McKenzie River and into the Willamette River. “As the plastic ages, it gets broken into smaller and smaller pieces that are eaten by wildlife and enter the food chain,” according to SOLVE.
The Camp Creek Watershed Cleanup is scheduled for Saturday, November 20th, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.. Participants will meet on Upper Camp Creek Road. Details on a specific meeting location will be sent to all registered volunteers.
People should wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes, bring snacks and water, and be prepared for variable Oregon weather. All cleanup materials and instruction: gloves, bags, and litter grabbers will be provided for up to 50 volunteers.
