Opportunity Details

Litter Cleanup

Age Minimum (with Adult): 1+, Minimum Age:13+

Brookings Beach Cleanup


Join SOLVE and Oregon State Parks at the Brookings Rest Area from 10 AM – 1 PM! After checking in, volunteers will fan out to clean beaches at Crissey Field, McVay Rock, South Jetty, Mill Beach, Harris Beach, and Whales Head Picnic Area.
This event is part of the annual Spring Oregon Beach Cleanup, presented by AAA Oregon, a statewide effort to keep our beaches free of harmful litter.
Help us protect marine life and maintain the beauty of our coast. Be prepared by dressing for any weather and wear sturdy shoes. SOLVE will provide bags and gloves. However, you are encouraged to bring your own reusable bucket/bag, gloves, and water bottle to help reduce plastic waste. Don’t forget about the small stuff! The most commonly found items of trash found on Oregon beaches are tiny bits of plastic and cigarette butts, which can be harmful to shore birds and marine life. Bring an old colander to sift the sand for these items. This beach cleanup is family-friendly, and volunteers of all ages will find the event fun and rewarding.
Remember our ocean shores can be dangerous. Avoid logs in the water. Keep your distance from 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. And remember, it’s more fun to work as part of a team. Bring a buddy, stay safe and have fun!
Hauling and disposal services donated by Curry Transfer & Recycling.
