Siuslaw ChapterServing the Florence community and protecting our oceans, waves and beaches More Details
On 06/23, 28 members and volunteers of the Siuslaw Chapter of Surfrider Foundation cleaned up nearly 1,200 pounds of debris from the Siltcoos Outlet beach area. These photos really demonstrate the type of debris that we’re seeing from the tsunami event in Japan last March – foam/polystyrene, lumber, bottles and containers and just about anything that floats high off the water. Massive kudos to all our volunteers who pitched in and are helping keep our beaches clean!
Come on friends and join us for our summer beach cleanup at the beautiful Siltcoos Outlet on Saturday, June 23rd 10:00 a.m. to noon.
Siltcoos Beach is located 8 miles south of Florence, turn right on Siltcoos Beach Access Rd. and we’ll be in the parking lot with cleanup supplies. Bring your own if you please!
Siltcoos outlet lies at the mouth of the Siltcoos River where it flows into the Pacific Ocean. It is unique here because there are no maintained jetties or channels, and is considered a natural estuary. This undeveloped habitat area is also known for its many species of birds that nest and frequent here. So bring your binoculars because the birds are abound here!
