The goal of the Trailhead and Beach Ambassador program is to promote responsible and safe recreation along the Oregon Coast to locals and visitors. A number of organizations that make up the North Coast Tourism Management Network are looking for locals who would like to spend a couple hours on the weekend to support State Park Beach Rangers. Locations for this summer are Oswald West State Park, Cape Kiwanda, and Rockaway Beach. This initial training will be on July 23rd at Nehalem Bay State Park from 1:00 pm to 3:00pm.
