Heceta Beach Cleanup
Join SOLVE at Heceta Beach from 10 AM – 1 PM! Park at south end of Driftwood Shores Hotel parking lot. 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.
Note that there are some beach restrictions in this area (on the north side) for snowy plover nesting season. Help protect this amazing shorebird! Please look out for signs, do not cross roped off areas even if you see trash, and keep your pets leashed.
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! If you find any hazardous material, please alert your Beach Captain.
Hauling, disposal and recycling services donated by Central Coast Disposal and Lane County.
