SOLVE Great Oregon Beach Cleanup
Mar 26th 10:00am - 1:00pm
Join SOLVE and Pacific Alarms Systems at the Cannon Beach City Hall beach cleanup from 10 AM – 1 PM! This event is part of the annual Spring Oregon Beach Cleanup, a statewide effort to keep our beaches healthy and reduce the impacts to marine life. Dress for rain or shine and wear sturdy shoes. SOLVE will provide bags and gloves. Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own reusable bucket/bag and water bottle to help reduce plastic waste. Don’t forget about the small stuff! The #1 items found on Oregon beaches are tiny bits of plastic and cigarette butts, which are harmful to shore birds and marine life. Bring an old colander or kitty litter scoop to sift the sand for these items. 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 and steer clear of roped off Snowy Plover nesting areas. If you find any hazardous material, please alert your Beach Captain. Hauling, disposal and recycling services donated by Recology Western Oregon. Recycling will be provided by the Oregon Beverage Recycling Cooperative.
