Sand Lake Cleanup: POSTPONED
Join SOLVE and the Sand Lake Beach Clean-up Crew at the Sand Lake Recreation Area 10 AM – 1 PM! 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.
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. May not be best suited for young children not accompanied by an adult. If you have questions regarding this area, please feel free to contact Jasmine Gehring.
There will be a 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!
Help us protect marine life and maintain the beauty of our coast. Be prepared by dressing for any weather and wearing sturdy shoes. You are encouraged to bring your own reusable bucket/bag, gloves, and water bottle to help reduce plastic waste. If you happen to forget, SOLVE will provide bags and gloves. 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 Nestucca Valley Sanitary Service and Tillamook County.
