Join SOLVE, the City of Cannon Beach, and Pacific Alarm Systems from 10 AM – 1 PM for the spring beach cleanup! Help protect marine life and maintain the beauty of the Oregon coast. Check-in is at the City Hall on Gower St. Beaches to be cleaned range from the main Cannon Beach accesses, up to Ecola State Park, and down south to Arch Cape. Once checked in, you will choose which beach you’d like to clean.
Don’t forget about the small stuff! The most commonly found items of trash found on Oregon beaches are tiny bits of plastic and cigarette butts, which can be harmful to shorebirds and marine life. Bring an old colander to sift the sand for these items. This beach cleanup is family-friendly, and volunteers of all ages will find the event fun and rewarding. Remember our ocean shores can be dangerous. Avoid logs in the water. Keep your distance from marine mammals, and never turn your back on the ocean! If you find any hazardous material, please alert your Beach Captain. And remember, it’s more fun to work as part of a team. Bring a buddy, stay safe and have fun!
