People are invited to join together with thousands of Oregonians this Saturday, Sept. 25, for SOLVE’s Beach & Riverside Cleanup, in partnership with the Oregon Lottery. Oregonians, from Astoria to Brookings, Pendleton to Sunriver, are encouraged to sign up for this statewide cleanup event at www.solveoregon.org/beach-riverside-cleanup
Locally, the Newport Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation is hosting five beach cleanup sites in the Newport area: Yaquina Bay State Park, Nye Beach Turnaround, Agate Beach Wayside, Beverly Beach and Otter Rock. Also, the Oregon Coast Aquarium is hosting a beach cleanup site at South Beach State Park.
The cleanup efforts will run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. All necessary tools and supplies will be provided. Organizers say the Beach & Riverside Cleanup is a great way to bond with family members, coworkers and neighbors, all while collectively giving back to some of Oregon’s most beautiful places.
