It’s almost time for one of Oregon’s most popular volunteer activities - the SOLV Beach Clean-up. Carrie Hearne, 32, of southeast Portland has been heading to the coast for the event for years. She's stuffed bags with pounds of trash, cans, yards of rope. Oregon's coastline is publicly owned. Hearne says she volunteers because it's our duty to protect the beaches. Additional details on getting involved at: www.solv.org.
