Siltcoos Outlet Cleanup

Join SOLVE at the Siltcoos Outlet from 10 AM – 1 PM for a cleanup! See Meeting Spot for parking instructions. Please note that there are beach restrictions at this site for snowy plover nesting season. Please look out for signs, do not cross roped off areas, and keep dogs on a leash at all times. This event is part of the annual Spring Oregon Beach Cleanup, a statewide effort to keep our beaches healthy and reduce the impacts to marine life. Dress for rain or shine and wear sturdy shoes. SOLVE will provide bags and gloves. Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own reusable bucket/bag and water bottle to help reduce plastic waste. Don’t forget about the small stuff! The #1 items found on Oregon beaches are tiny bits of plastic and cigarette butts, which are harmful to shore birds and marine life. Bring an old colander to sift the sand for these items. Please remember our ocean shores can be dangerous. Avoid logs in the water and marine mammals, and never turn your back on the ocean! If you find any hazardous material, please alert your Beach Captain. Hauling, disposal and recycling services donated by Central Coast Disposal and Lane County.
