Looking for some fun for the friends and/or family this summer? Check out one of the many awesome guided tidepool series, participate in fun citizen science projects and bone up…
Join the Newport Chapter of Surfrider Foundation and Oregon Hang Gliders Association as they help keep Hwy 101 litter and debris from reaching our beloved beaches. A few volunteers can make a big difference in a short amount of time, we welcome all age participants and this is a great community service hours opportunity for students.
We need your help! Time is running out incredibly fast to save the harbor seals from pupping alongside Chevelle’s tangled crab pots!
I can’t stress enough how much we need a large contingent of folks this weekend to move the remaining crab gear off this beach! Saturday and Sunday is all we have left! After that, the beach is closed to us as the harbor seals will move in and begin raising their newborns. We can’t afford to endanger the baby harbor seals by leaving any remnants of this crab gear behind. We must act this weekend. And we must act with every able bodied individual that can assist!
Please pass the word on to every single person you know that can dedicate a few hours this coming Saturday and Sunday morning to make this crab gear disappear before it’s too late. We need families, we need high school students, we need college students, we need retirees, we need ocean lovers, beach combers…whatever category you fit into, WE NEED YOU!
