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)
