The Nehalem Estuary Cleanup happens just once every two years, so don’t miss out on Saturday, March 5th, for the opportunity to spend a day making a lasting difference in the beauty, safety, and habitat quality of our bay and estuary. The river needs us. A clean bay and estuary are not only good for salmon and wildlife, but also a healthy estuarine habitat does our region proud. Help us pick up assorted debris in every imaginable shape, size, and color, and you’ll also learn about our region’s ecology and the potential threats posed by marine debris.

As folks finish their cleanup, starting at 11:00 a.m., volunteers are invited to enjoy a chili and cornbread luncheon, and to socialize (with appropriate distancing) at the Park.

This event is proudly sponsored by the Lower Nehalem Community Trust and Lower Nehalem Watershed Council, with invaluable contributions from Oregon State Parks, Heart of CARTM, Tillamook Estuaries Partnership, Surfrider Foundation, SOLVE, and many more local businesses, organizations and community members.
