Nude Beach Clean-ups Set for
August 24 and 25 and September 21 and 22:
AANR-NW has continued to be beach adopters for the two legal nude beaches in Oregon as well as Rooster Rock State Park itself. As such, two beach litter clean-ups must be scheduled each year to fulfill the agreement. For a few years, the water was extremely high for the first one, to the point that even the trails were under water. We have been told the water is down and the beaches will be clear. We will be coordinating with Oregon State Parks, Oregon Fish and Wildlife and SOLVE on these clean-ups. SOLVE on-line sign-ups are below or sign-in at the event.
Saturday, August 24 and Saturday, September 21 at 10:00 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 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. On-line sign-up opportunities are here:
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 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. Please do not leave any items visible in your car. The only restrooms accessible from the nude beach are located near the parking area. Unfortunately, the Columbia Gorge Express bus to Rooster Rock does not leave until 10:30 a.m.
Sunday, August 25 and Sunday, September 22 at 1:00 p.m. at Sauvie Island-Collins Beach A parking pass is usually required and can be purchased at the store or deli after crossing the bridge to the island. SOLVE has been able to get us some free day-of-event passes for those that volunteer. Contact the public lands coordinator for info below. Restrooms are close and located in the parking area. We will concentrate our efforts on the gravel road parking area and litter sweeps of the beach area. Meet on the beach near the third beach opening. Those cleaning the parking area must remain clothed. A hot dog barbeque and potluck will be held at around 3:30 p.m. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for an e-mailed Collins beach parking pass or further details on these events . Be sure to bring gardening work gloves (if you have them) , a hat and sunscreen and perhaps a water bottle. As mentioned, we will have cold water and sugar free lemonade.

Becaue of illness, there was a quick sale of the resort. The deal was financed and it was closed on Wednesday August 7th.
Anyone that had a reservation is cancelled. The past owners have tried to contact as many people as possible with reservations to let them know the resort is closed. However, not everyone was contacted. If you have questions feel free to contact John at 1-253-588-0470
