The Newport Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation is a incredible group of people working hard to protect their local ocean and beaches! Not only is the Chapter protecting special places like Otter Rock Marine Reserve, Yaquina Head and South Beach State Park, but they have the most robust Blue Water Task Force water quality program on the coast, run the only youth surf competition in the state and host more beach cleanups than any other chapter in Oregon!
August 11th — 9:30am, South Beach State Park @ South Jetty
Join Clean Oceans International and Rising Appalachia for a first time, free Coastal Cleanup!
We’re fired up to bring together a day of action, in collaboration with the Beloved festival (belovedfestival.com), to reduce the amount of debris (plastic and otherwise) from a piece of the Oregon Coastline. Rising Appalachia and Clean Oceans International have teamed up with the Oregon State Parks System to provide a volunteer opportunity to monitor and remove trash as well as study micro-debris accumulation!
