Siuslaw ChapterServing the Florence community and protecting our oceans, waves and beaches More Details
Big heaps to volunteers who showed up this past Sunday to remove more than 4 pick up loads of trash (estimated over 2 tons) from the important snowy plover beach habitat from Siltcoos to Tahkenitch. 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.
Join us this Sunday, November 3rd from 2pm-5pm for a cleanup of the lovely and remote Tahkenitch and Siltcoos Recreational areas. This remote beach has been accumulating debris all summer, 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.
