Did you know that this twice a year event was the first ever statewide volunteer event for beach cleanups?

For this year's event this past Saturday, over 40,000 pounds of garbage and nearly 4,000 volunteers showed up for the effort along the 360 miles of coastline in Oregon. Check out some of the highlights from the sites in Zone 7 on the central coast . Surfrider Foundation chapters and volunteers across Oregon stepped up this year captaining 8 sites from Cannon Beach to Florence. Great work team!
