At Next Adventure, we love playing outside, but we also love giving back and taking care of this playground we call planet earth. Our friends over at Solve Oregon have organized a "Pick-Up" at the legendary Pier Park disc golf course where volunteeres will help remove invasive ivy, plant natives, pick up litter, and paint over graffiti so we can all enjoy the course.
