This coming Thursday, from 6:30-8:30pm, 04/18, at the Yaquina Bay Yacht Club, the Newport Chapter of Surfrider Foundation will be hosting the Newport High School SF and Art Clubs’ for an art workshop to finalize their De-nailing Nye Project.The kids have worked throughout the school year to plan out this cool project combining cleanup, stewardship, art and awareness. Pallet and construction debris is often illegally burned for bonfires at or around the Nye Beach area.

Beach bonfires are fun, but when irresponsible about burning materials such as pallets, the result is a beach full of nails and dangerous pieces of metal and construction shards. The kids used construction magnets for scheduled cleanups to remove existing nails from the beach and this Thursday we’ll be helping them use those nails for an art project/installation to raise awareness about the issue. Please join us and help complete this cool kids project!
