Opportunity Details

Sand Lake Cleanup

Join SOLVE at Sand Lake from 10 AM – 1 PM on 04/23 for a beach cleanup! This event is part of the annual Oregon Spring Clean Up.

Please be aware that this area is an ATV/UTV/Off-road vehicle area and the beach is approximately 1/2 mile away from parking lot across the sand dunes where off-road vehicles are present. May not be best for young children. If you have questions regarding this area, please feel free to contact jasminegehring@gmail.com.

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.

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 donated by the Forest Service.
