Ophir Beach Cleanup - CANCELLED
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED due to inclement weather. Volunteers are encouraged to head a bit north to the Battle Rock site in Port Orford. Thanks!
Join SOLVE and Oregon State Parks at the Ophir State Recreation Site from 10 AM – 1 PM for a beach cleanup! 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 roped off Snowy Plover nesting areas. If you find any hazardous material, please alert your Beach Captain.
Hauling, disposal and recycling services donated by Oregon State Parks and Curry Transfer and Recycling.
Meet at Ophir Wayside.
Site is approximately 18 miles south of Port Orford, and 10 miles north of Gold Beach, between Ophir and Nesika Beach on Hwy 101.
