Join the Newport Chapter of Surfrider Foundation, Oregon Hang Gliders Association and Adopt a Highway as they help keep litter and other debris on Highway 101 from reaching our beloved beaches. A few volunteers can make a big difference in a short amount of time, we welcome all age participants and this is a great community service hours opportunity for students.
This section of highway becomes littered with large amounts of trash from passing vehicles and needs attention in order to eliminate the trash from plaguing our nearby beaches! Surfrider Foundation organizes 4 cleanups of this stretch of highway per year, so our cleanups on this stretch of highway are very important to the health of Moolack Beach directly below the highway.
Wear sturdy shoes and bring work gloves if you have them. We’ll supply everything you need; gloves, bags, trash pick-sticks, and of course-caffeine!
This highway cleanup is weather dependent. Please RSVP to the contact e-mail listed above so you may be notified if the cleanup is rescheduled due to inclement weather.
