South Beach State Park Cleanup
Join SOLVE and the Oregon Coast Aquarium at South Beach State Park from 10 AM – 1 PM for a beach cleanup! This event is part of the annual Beach & Riverside Cleanup, in partnership with the Oregon Lottery, and the International Coastal Cleanup, a world-wide effort to keep our beaches healthy. Help us protect marine life and maintain the beauty of our coast.
Don’t forget about the small stuff! The most commonly found items of trash found on Oregon beaches are tiny bits of plastic and cigarette butts, which can be harmful to shore birds and marine life. Bring an old colander to sift the sand for these items.
This beach cleanup is family-friendly, and volunteers of all ages will find the event fun and rewarding. Remember our ocean shores can be dangerous. Avoid logs in the water. Keep your distance from marine mammals, and never turn your back on the ocean! If you find any hazardous material, please alert your Beach Captain. And remember, it’s more fun to work as part of a team. Bring a buddy, stay safe and have fun!
