AANR-NW Government Affairs Team celebrates a 15 year partnership with the Oregon State Parks Department. Adoptions include Rooster Rock State Park through the Oregon Adopt-A-Park program. Sauvie Island-Collins Beach and Rooster Rock State Park adoptions are also contracted through the SOLV adoption program. Our partnerships with officials have been successful because of dues paying AANR members and dedicated volunteers who complete the required four beach cleanups every summer. AANR-NW volunteers have completed over 50 beach cleanups. Now that is something to celebrate!
The Willamettans Family Nudist resort www.willamettans.com is gifting all registered beach volunteers with a two-day pass to their resort in Marcola, Oregon. You must register day of event to receive this generous gift.
AANR membership is not required to participate. All volunteers welcome and appreciated. Just show up with water in a refillable container, shoes, gloves, hat, lots of sunscreen and a big smile! Parking fees are waived for volunteers at Rooster Rock. We are working to get parking passes for volunteers at Collins Beach. Do not leave any valuables in your car.
AANR-NW will be supplying the ever popular AANR dogs (hot dogs) at beach cleanups again this year.
