Siuslaw ChapterServing the Florence community and protecting our oceans, waves and beaches More Details
It’s that time again, time to keep it clean upstream before it gets to our ocean, waves and beaches! Join us the coming Saturday, August 24th from 10am-1pm to help cleanup the Siuslaw Estuary, we’ll be stationed from Mapleton all the way down to the Port dock and boat launch.
Huge thanks to the 30 volunteers who came out to help clean the Siuslaw River & Estuary today! In only 3 hrs. the crew hauled in approximately 1400 pounds of trash, including over 60 tires, preventing all this rubbish from ending up in the ocean and on our beaches. The Siuslaw Chapter would like to thank our partners at SOLVE, Lane County Transfer and Recycling, and the Siuslaw Soil and Water Conservation District for all of their support, as well as the Wakonda Brewing Company for hosting the volunteer appreciation after party. Great work team!!!

Americans use 60,000 plastic bags every five minutes, disposable bags that they throw away without much thought. But where is “away”? Where do the bags and other plastics end up, and at what cost to the environment, marine life, and human health?
Bag It follows “everyman” Jeb Berrier as he navigates our plastic world. Jeb’s journey in this documentary film starts with simple questions: Are plastic bags really necessary? What are plastic bags made from? What happens to plastic bags after they are discarded? What starts as a film about plastic bags evolves into a wholesale investigation into plastic and its effect on our waterways, oceans, and our own bodies. Our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up to us. And we can do something about it. Today. Right now.
