The City of Newport and SOLVE are seeking individuals and local non-profit organizations to participate in a post-eclipse beach clean-up. This is an opportunity to help the environment and raise funds for local non-profit organizations.
The beach clean-up, coordinated with Oregon State Parks and Recreation Department and SOLVE, will be held on Saturday, August 26, 2017, from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. There are six beach sites scheduled for clean-up during this event: Ernest Bloch/Lucky Gap Trail Beach; Agate Beach; Nye Beach; Yaquina Bay State Park; South Beach State Park day use area; and Lost Creek.
Local non-profit organizations can earn up to $10 per volunteer hour, with a maximum of $1,000 per organization for participating in this event. Interested non-profits should register their group with Peggy Hawker (see below.)
The assignments will be made on a first come/first served basis. Local non-profit organizations will be required to appoint two beach captains per site. The beach captains will attend a mandatory training on August 11th at City Hall. They will pick up supplies at that time.
