Rooster Rock Beach Cleanup @ 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 foot coverings 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 that you are there for the clean-up. When registering, you may receive a card to put in your window. Meet at the east end of the parking lot near the restrooms.

The main focus is widening of the trails to the beach with secondary of litter clean-up. The clean-up should not last longer than around three hours, and will be followed by a hot dog barbeque. AANR-NW will provide cold water, sugar free lemonade, hot dogs, buns and trimmings and some other snacks. There will also be some free t-shirts or small sitting towels for volunteers.

The temperature is predicted in the 70’s. Please do not leave any items visible in your car. The only restrooms accessible from the nude beach are located near the parking area. The Columbia Gorge Express bus ($5 round trip) goes from the Gateway Transit Center to Rooster Rock and on to Multnomah Falls. Details at:
