Rapid Response Cleanup Yields Big Impact at Otter Rock

Big kudos to Newport Chapter of Surfrider Foundation’s Beach and Highway Cleanup Coordinator Peter Snell and  OPRD’s Beach Ranger Ryan Parker for their leadership, as well as all of the volunteers that came out for the cleanup at the Otter Rock Marine Reserve, in the northern marine gardens earlier this month. The group removed over 2,800 lbs of asphalt from the beach and marine gardens through a core group of 6 volunteers working strategically in the sensitive habitat. These types of rapid response cleanups  are part of a pilot project funded by NOAA’s Marine Debris Program that Oregon volunteers and chapters are participating in this year.
