AIS Students Work Together to Clean Oregon Waterways

AIS Students Work with SOLVE Oregon to Clean Oregon Beaches

On Saturday, September 21, 2018, AIS students and teachers came together with SOLVE Oregon to help clean the beaches in celebration of International Coastal Clean-Up and National Public Lands Day. The Beach and Riverside clean-up project began in 1984 and since then, beach clean-up participants have helped to clear bottle caps, cigarette butts, food wrappers, bottles, cans, and other trash from Oregon waterways. AIS students were part of the effort that resulted in the removal of 42,000 pounds of trash from Oregon waterways.
