Join the Newport Chapter of Surfrider Foundation and Oregon Hang Gliders Association 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 is a great community service hours opportunity for students.
This section of highway, two miles north of Newport, becomes littered with lots of trash from passing vehicles and needs attention in order to eliminate the trash from getting onto the beaches. Surfrider Foundation organizes 4 cleanups a year along this stretch of highway to preserve the health of Moolack Beach directly below.
Volunteers should 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 below so you may be notified if the cleanup is rescheduled due to inclement weather moving in.
