Nehalem Bay State Park Cleanup

Join SOLVE and Oregon State Parks at Nehalem Bay State Park from 10 AM – 1 PM for a beach cleanup! Check-in is in the park by the Meeting Hall. Once checked in, volunteers will fan out to different access points in the park. 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.
Note that there are some beach restrictions at this site 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 leave your pets at home.

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 and disposal services donated by Oregon State Parks and Tillamook County.
