Oregon Dunes 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 Beach & Riverside Cleanup and the International Coastal Cleanup, a world-wide effort to keep our beaches healthy.
Location: 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!
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. 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. If you find any hazardous material, please alert your Beach Captain.
