Host: Friends of Netarts Bay WEBS

Event Type:

Join SOLVE, Friends of Netarts Bay WEBS (, and Tillamook County at the Netarts Bay Boat Ramp (2065 Netarts Boat Basin Road, Netarts, OR) from 10 AM – 1 PM for a shoreline cleanup!

Friends of Netarts Bay WEBS members and our partners have been working with SOLVE to host cleanups in the area from Cape Lookout to Cape Meares to Bay Ocean for over a decade. Join us this year and help us protect marine life and maintain the beauty of our coast.

Don’t forget about the small stuff! The most commonly found items of trash found on Oregon beaches are tiny bits of plastic and cigarette butts, which can be harmful to shorebirds and marine life. Bring an old colander to sift the sand for these items.

This beach cleanup is family-friendly, and volunteers of all ages will find the event fun and rewarding.

Remember our ocean shores can be dangerous. Avoid logs in the water. Keep your distance from marine mammals, and never turn your back on the ocean! If you find any hazardous material, please alert your Beach Captain. And remember, it’s more fun to work as part of a team. Bring a buddy, stay safe, and have fun!

Advanced Registration: Is highly suggested but not required. Please sign up (green button below) ahead of time to guarantee your spot.

Meeting Location: Volunteers will be meeting at the Netarts Boat Basin. Look for the SOLVE signs and Friends of Netarts Bay flag!
