The last of the Surfrider 2017 beach cleanups will take place on Sept. 23, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Otter Rock State Beach, Beverly State Beach, Agate Beach Wayside, Nye Beach, and Yaquina Bay State Park.
This year is the 50th anniversary of the Oregon Beach Bill. In the spirit of the Beach Bill, everyone is invited to participate in collecting litter and marine debris. The Surfrider Foundation’s Newport Chapter in conjunction with SOLVE will provide supplies and crew leaders at the 5 mentioned locations. This is an opportunity to work locally on an important environmental issue (clean beaches) and have fun.
After the cleanup there will be food and drinks at 1 at Yaquina Bay State Park for volunteers. Newport Surfrider is hosting a taco bar with veggie, fish, and chicken tacos. This end of summer event will also include beer and sodas.
