SEA Quarterly Beach Cleanups
WHAT– SEA is continuing a quarterly beach cleanup program first launched in March of 2018. Partnering with SOLVE, Washed Ashore, CoastWatch, Surfrider, and Oregon Parks & Recreation Department’s Bullards Beach Management Unit and Cape Blanco Management Unit – and getting excellent volunteer participation – SEA’s beach cleanups have proven to be highly successful. And SEA cleanups are open to members and non-members alike. It’s a fun way to get together with other beach enthusiasts and do a good deed for the community, the beaches, and the wildlife that depends on a healthy ocean ecosystem to thrive. Please join us!
WHERE– Depending on the number of volunteers that sign up, cleanups will generally take place on multiple Bandon-area beaches at the same time from around Cape Blanco State Park to the south and Seven Devils State Recreation Site to the north.
WHEN– The schedule for 2019 is as follows and is subject to last-minute change due to adverse weather and tidal conditions:
March 23rd at 10:00 am (in conjunction with SOLVE’s Spring Beach Cleanup)
June 8that 10:00 am
September 21stat 10:00 am (in conjunction with SOLVE’s Beach & Riverside Cleanup)

SOLVE Spring Oregon Beach Cleanup
Join SOLVE for a day at the beach on March 23rd, 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM, in partnership with AAA, as we celebrate over three decades of spring beach cleanups along the entire Oregon coast!
Since 1986, this home-grown tradition of twice-yearly beach cleanups has benefited people and wildlife alike, supporting clean seas and healthy communities for present and future generations.
This is a family friendly event and SOLVE invites all Oregonians to participate. Head to your favorite beach or explore somewhere new at one of 45 check in sites from Astoria to Brookings. Bags and gloves are provided. Help make the event more sustainable by bringing your own bucket and/or sturdy gloves, and don’t forget your reusable water bottle!
