It’s important to WHUUF’s Members that we live our values. Here are some of the ways we’re helping the planet:

Beach Clean up 2014-03-22 SOLVE UUs Before (2)

The SOLVE Spring Beach Clean-up will be Saturday, March 26. To participate with other UUs sign up downstairs at the Social Justice table. We’ll be at the same beautiful beach as the past few years—Boy Scout Camp Meriwether beach several miles south of Tillamook.

From 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. that Saturday, we will gather with UUs from other churches to act on our Seventh Principle, and help take care of one little part of our earth. The report from the Park Ranger who coordinates that section of the coast is that once again that beach is in particular need of cleaning.


Public Testimony

Our congregants participated in public testimony addressing whether to allow fossil fuel trains through the Columbia Gorge and through Portland and Vancouver;


Recycling and composting

You’ll find recycling containers throughout our campus–and a compost bin just outside the kitchen.
