Volunteer for an Oregon Tradition!

Posted by OCVA / March 18, 2010

The first all-volunteer beach cleanup in the nation was held here in Oregon in 1984. Since then, annual volunteer beach cleanups have spread to all 50 states and nearly 100 countries around the globe. In 2008, nearly 4,000,000 volunteers picked up 6.8 million pounds of trash from nearly every major body of water worldwide.

On Saturday March 20th from 10AM – 1PM, Oregonians are invited to continue this home-grown tradition of twice-yearly beach cleanups along our coastline, from the Washington to California borders. This effort benefits citizens and wildlife alike, and empowers us all to take an active role in protecting our beautiful state and our coastal environment.
