Rescheduled Nude Beach Clean-ups – October 5 & 6

The first rescheduled AANR-NW beach clean-up will be on Saturday,
October 5 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. MEETING
LOCATION CHANGE: Because of a cross country event at the east end of the
parking lot that morning, meet instead at the office near the
entrance. 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. The
only restrooms accessible from the nude beach are located near the
parking area.

Sunday, October 6 – 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. AANR-NW will supply a barbeque,
hamburgers, hot dogs and fixings, water, sugar free lemonade, plates,
tableware, napkins as well as a table and covering canopy. Bring a
folding chair/towel to sit on and dry off with as well as a potluck
item and your favorite beverage.

For your security, please do not leave any items visible in your vehicle.

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!!
