Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area Cleanup
Join SOLVE and the U.S. Forest Service at Sparrow Park from 10 AM – 1 PM for a beach cleanup! 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.
Sparrow Park road is located 4.5 miles north of Reedsport, OR off US Highway 101. The 4 mile road down to Sparrow Park is rough and in one area has a large dip filled with water causing it to be hard to pass with a car. Trucks are recommended for this road. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions!
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 and disposal (partially) donated by the U.S. Forest Service.
