Oregon Coast Aquarium Beach Clean-up
Join the Oregon Coast Aquarium at South Beach State Park from on Wednesday, July 5th, 9:00am - 1:00pm for beach clean up! We hope to clean up trash and items left over from any 4th of July celebrations held on the beach.
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, we 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.
