Sand Lake Cleanup
Join SOLVE and the Sand Lake Duners at Sand Lake Recreation Area from 10 AM – 1 PM for a 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.
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 Nestucca Valley Santiary Service.
Please be aware that this area is an ATV/UTV/Offroad vehicle area and the beach is approximately 1/2 mile away from parking lot across the sand dunes where offroad vehicles are present. If you have questions regarding this area, please feel free to contact Jasmine Gehring.
There will be a raffle and potluck for all participants if you'd like to join; please find our event on Facebook for more information! If you need assistance finding the event or have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
