Oregon Coast Tsunami Debris Cleanups in March Need Volunteers
(Oregon Coast) - The Oregon Marine Debris Team (OMDT) continues to work on cleaning up tsunami debris and other garbage with possible harmful effects that wash up on the Oregon coast. A large array of these has been scheduled for March, with most around Newport, and one in Wheeler. (Above: the Newport tsunami dock being removed in August).
The OMDT is asking for volunteers for these upcoming beach cleanups, many of which happen this weekend. Then, the big statewide SOLVE Beach Cleanup happens on March 30 – and an early call for volunteers is going out for that one as well.
For more information on these cleanups or the SOLVE Spring Beach Cleanup, contact: Briana Goodwin, SOLVE, (503) 844-9571 ext. 317 - office; (630) 656-4420 - cell, firstname.lastname@example.org.
