Love Your Ocean, Rivers, Dunes and Beaches? Join Our Crew!

The Siuslaw Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation covers the Florence, Oregon region. The Chapter’s work is focused on protecting and testing water quality, organizing quarterly beach cleanups, running monthly marine debris monitoring programs, and developing education and stewardship activities related to the recently established Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve.

We are a passionate (and awesome) group of people who love our ocean, rivers, dunes, forests, waves and beaches. Sound like you? We are looking for more like-minded locals to help us care for these special places.

Rapid Response Cleanup this Saturday

This remote beach has been accumulating debris all summer and fall, and with the winter weather coming we want to get that debris out of there before the high water events drag it back offshore again.

Responding to support requested from Oregon State Parks beach rangers for a rapid response cleanup, the Siuslaw Chapter consulted with USFS and OPRD to allow for special access, under their oversight, to help remove debris from the sensitive plover habitat and beach area.
