AANR-NW September Rooster Rock/Sauvie Island Beach Cleanups

he first beach clean-up will be on Saturday, September 21 at 9:00 a.m.
at Rooster Rock State Park. This is a clothing optional event, if you
are cleaning in the nude area. It is highly suggested that you wear
shoes and sun screen. Hats are also recommended if it is very bright.
Bring work gloves if you have them. All tools and clean-up bags will
be furnished. We will be working with the Rooster Rock park staff. The
Park Ranger Supervisor will have a list of projects that includes light
to heavy work. Volunteers do not have to pay the day use fee. Tell the
person in the registration booth, if it is manned, that you are there
for the clean-up. When registering for the clean-up, you will receive a
card to put in your window. Meet at the farthest east end of the
parking lot near the restrooms above the beach. The clean-up should
not last longer than around three hours, and will be followed by a
hamburger/hot dog barbeque out on the beach where the main trail comes
through the vegetation. AANR-NW will provide table, barbeque, plates,
tableware, napkins, cold water, sugar free lemonade, burgers, hot dogs
and trimmings and some dessert snacks. We will have a canopy if the
weather is less than perfect. For your security, please do not leave
any items visible in your car. The only restrooms accessible from the
nude beach are located near the parking area.
Sunday, September 22 – Sauvie Island-Collins Beach – clean-up at noon.
A parking pass is usually required and can be purchased at the store
or deli after crossing the bridge to the island but SOLVE again is
providing free day-of-event passes for those that volunteer. Restrooms
are portable toilets located in the parking area near the beach trail
openings. We will concentrate our efforts on the gravel road parking
area and litter sweeps of the beach area from nude beach opening one
(number two marked opening) to the opening marked number six. Meet on
the beach near the second nude beach opening (number 3 opening). A
potluck will be held at around 2:00 p.m. Hidden Springs non-landed club
is sponsoring this event and will supply a barbeque, hamburgers, hot
dogs and fixings, water, sugar free lemonade, plates, tableware, napkins
as well as a table and canopy. Bring a folding chair/towel to sit on
and dry off with as well as a potluck item and your favorite beverage.
We need additional volunteers at these events so that we can retain our
beach sponsorship. These legal nude beaches are unique to Oregon and we
want to continue to keep our beaches bare!!
Want to volunteer but need more info? Contact gat@aanr-nw.org for
directions, further details on these events and how to get a
complimentary Collins Beach parking pass e-mailed.
