Give the beach a clean bill of health

Published on May 16, 2017 4:49PM

The second installment in the Surfrider 2017 Beach Cleanup Series will take place on Saturday, May 20, at Ona Beach near Newport.

The Newport chapter of Surfrider organized the series to mark the 50th anniversary of the Oregon Beach Bill, which guaranteed public access to Oregon’s coastline in perpetuity.

The cleanup will run from noon to 3 pm, with volunteers meeting in the Ona Beach parking lot and encouraged to bring reusable gloves and buckets.

“This is an opportunity to work locally on an important environmental issue and have fun,” said Surfider Beach Clean Coordinator Pete Snell. “The day will be family friendly, so bring the kids to the beach.”

Saturday’s cleanup will be followed by four more dates throughout the summer: June 17, July 15, Aug. 19 and Sept. 23.
