Gearhart Beach Cleanup

Join SOLVE and Oregon State Parks at the Gearhart Beach Approach on 10th St from 10 AM – 1 PM! Note that there is limited paved parking, with additional parking on the beach recommended for hardy vehicles only (ie vehicles that won't get stuck on packed sand).
This event is part of the annual Spring Oregon Beach Cleanup, presented by AAA Oregon, 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. However, volunteers are encouraged to bring their own reusable bucket/bag, gloves, 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! Please keep dogs on a leash and steer clear of restricted Snowy Plover nesting areas - look for signs. If you find any hazardous material, please alert your Beach Captain.
Hauling, disposal and recycling services donated by Recology Western Oregon.
