Sifting Saturdays (Beach Clean-up)

Saturday May 9th, Nye Beach in Newport, 10 to 1, check in from 10 to 11:15 (this event will be canceled if it rains).

Have you wondered about those colorful little bits we see more and more of in the sand? If you look closely they are everywhere and perhaps you’ve been out on a day when the rack lines were thick with them. Unfortunately most are plastic – not pretty stones. Plastic never really goes away, instead it’s breaking down into these tiny fragments. You also find lots of mermaids’ tears, these are particularly sad as they have never been anything useful even for a day. Technically know as nurdles, they are pre-production microplastic resin pellets.IMG_3571

Otter Rock Beach Cleanup — April 12th, Noon to 2pm

Come pitch in and help protect the Otter Rock Marine Reserve and Marine Gardens this Sunday! We are having a special cleanup of the Otter Rock/Devils Punch Bowl north beach and Marine Gardens that has asphalt on it from some failing paths and parking lots.  This involves breaking the larger chunks into smaller pieces that can then be carried from the beach in a chain style fashion with fellow volunteers!
