Do you love Oswald West State Park? Would you like to give back to a park that has given so much to so many? Join us on Saturday, October 6 from 10 am to noon for a morning filled with community service to give back to our beautiful Oregon coast! The Portland Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation will be hosting a beach cleanup along with some restoration projects – open to everyone of all ages! Surfrider Portland is partnering with the Cape Falcon Marine Reserve, Oregon State Parks, Explore Nature Tillamook Coast, and Costa Sunglasses for this great stewardship event!
We’ll spend 2 hours on beach clean-up and minor Oswald West restoration projects with Oregon State Park rangers. Volunteers will be treated to Surfrider PDX sponsored snacks and beverages. There will be some fun Costa Sunglasses swag to give away as well!
