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

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.
