Cougar Mountain Riders seek volunteers to ‘SOLVE’ trash in woods

Cougar Mountain Riders Association and SOLVE Oregon are seeking volunteers from the Lincoln City area for the ninth annual Woods Clean-Up, 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, alongside National Forest Development Road 1726 off East Devils Lake Road.

According to event organizers, a staging area for the cleanup will be approximately one mile up 1726, where a sign will be posted.

“North Lincoln Sanitary is sponsoring us by allowing us to dump trash for free, which can be a significant amount,” Cougar Mountain Riders Association President Eric Creighton said. “We do this to keep roads open so they don’t get closed down. It’s important to keep it clean.”

Creighton said volunteers easily fill two dump trailers each year, holding approximately four cubic yards each.

Members of the public who wish to volunteer can sign up at https://www.solveoregon.org/ or show up Saturday at the staging area.

SOLV Used to be an acronym for Stop Oregon Litter and Vandalism, the “E” has been added to address a call to action. SOLVE as an action verb, deploying tens of thousands of volunteers to improve our environment and build a legacy of stewardship. SOLV has Evolved and will continue to do so as we move forward.

Each year SOLVE provides resources to communities throughout Oregon, focusing on litter cleanup, tree planting, and invasive removal projects. There are SOLVE projects in every county in Oregon. SOLVE creates an average of 35,000 volunteer opportunities across the state annually.

Cougar Mountain Riders Association is a nonprofit organization joining together all-terrain vehicle enthusiasts of all ages and abilities to pursue, promote and protect ATV riding in Lincoln County.
