Help for Tsunami Debris Cleanup Needed This Weekend on N. Oregon Coast
(Pacific City, Oregon) – An unusual amount of foam and plastic tsunami debris at the southern end of Pacific City is creating a call to arms of sorts, with a beach cleanup at Bob Straub State Park on July 14 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The special cleanup needs volunteers to help pick up a hefty amount of trash that has made landfall here on the Nestucca Spit, on the dividing line between the north Oregon coast and the central Oregon coast.
