No better way to celebrate our freedom than to blow up the beaches and leave the toxic debris to be hauled off by the tide, right? Well at least not everyone feels that way… we had a great turnout for our 5th of July cleanup and we’d like to give a HUGE thanks to our partners and all the volunteers who made it happen!

The Friends of Cape Falcon Marine Reserve just announced an exciting job opportunity on the North Coast working on the implementation of the Cape Falcon Marine Reserve. Job description and application information posted below.
Our first Oswald West Action day of 2015 was a smashing success! We had 25 volunteers from Portland, the surrounding coastal communities and from our sponsors ReRack come out to help show a little love for this special, but heavily used place.
Despite the all the thunder and lightening, torrential downpours and frigid wind, our first Oswald West Committee action weekend was a great success! Activities included running our NOAA Marine Debris Monitoring transect/beach cleanup, a stewardship planning tour of Oswald West State Park led by Oregon State Parks and Recreation, water quality testing at our Blue Water Task Force lab at Nehalem Bay State Park and a brief stormy surf session by a few ‘brave’ individuals.
A big thanks to all the awesome volunteers that came out for last weekend’s cleanup. The haul pulled in lots of debris, chiefly from the high recreational use in the area…a reminder for us all to pack it out at Short Sands! A special thanks and shout out to our sponsor ReRack of Portland, who stoked out the volunteers with a fun BBQ and raffle following the cleanup.
