Siuslaw ChapterServing the Florence community and protecting our oceans, waves and beaches More Details
Under the new leadership of Lisa “Breeze” Wallace and her compatriot Debbie Edwards, the Suislaw Chapter is off to a great start in 2015. They’ve already knocked out a rapid response cleanup in sensitive snowy plover habitat between the Siltcoos River and Tahkenitch Creek, organized a highway cleanup adjacent to the Cape Perpetua Marine Protected Area and planned a great community presentation on climate change and coastal adaptation titled A Rising Tide: Coping with a Changing Coast.
Join us this Sunday, February 22nd from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm for a cleanup of the lovely and remote Tahkenitch and Siltcoos Recreational areas. This is a fun family event and a good time for all.
This Saturday, April 5th from 10am – noon, the Siuslaw Chapter is hosting our annual Spring Estuary Cleanup! We have a lot vested in protecting our local beaches and ocean environment, and we understand that especially with water quality and marine debris, that work starts upstream. Connecting stewardship in our watersheds to that on our beaches is something we’ve worked hard to instill in our members and volunteers.
