Nehalem Bay State Park Cleanup
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.
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, presented by AAA Oregon, a statewide effort to keep our beaches free of harmful litter.
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.
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! 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 Oregon State Parks and Tillamook County.
