Siuslaw ChapterServing the Florence community and protecting our oceans, waves and beaches More Details
Members of the Siuslaw Chapter (including 6 new volunteers from the Coast Guard) along with Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) swept a section of beach from Siltcoos to Takenhitch, cleaning debris before the beaches are closed to vehicle travel for Snow Plover nesting season, which starts on March 15th.
Come join us this Saturday for our Siuslaw Chapter Fall River and Estuary Cleanup! Come get a little dirty and help us care for our beautiful river. You can pickup cleanup supplies at Bridgeport Market in Florence, The Caffination Station in Mapleton and at the Deadwood Market. There is a potluck afterwards so bring a little something to throw on the BBQ. El Flowious will be cranking out the tunes, so don’t forget to pack your dancing shoes too! Come on out and show us some love!
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!!!
