In the spirit of the Beach Bill, everyone is invited to participate in collecting litter and marine debris. The Newport chapter of Surfrider will lead the cleanup from 12pm-3pm meeting in the Ona Beach parking lot. Volunteers are encouraged to bring reusable gloves and buckets. This is an opportunity to work locally on an important environmental issue (clean beaches) and have fun. The day will be family friendly, so bring the kids to the beach.
