These legally clothing optional beaches are near Portland. We have a commitment to two beach cleanups at each beach each year. Please come and help fulfill this commitment, while having a lot of fun.
The final 2016 Oregon nude beach clean-ups will be on September 24 and 25. Weather is supposed to be in the 70s Saturday and higher 70s or low 80s Sunday. The Saturday, September 24 one will be 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 suggested that you wear shoes and bring 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 manned) that you are there for the clean-up. When registering, you will receive a card to put in your window. Meet at the east end of the parking lot near the restrooms. This 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 dessert 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.
Sunday, September 25 – Sauvie Island-Collins Beach – clean-up at 1:00 p.m. – A parking pass is usually required and can normally be purchased at the store or deli after crossing the bridge to the island. SOLVE again was able to get us some free day-of-event passes for those that volunteer. 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 opening marked #3 (second clothing optional opening). A hot dog barbeque and potluck will be held at around 3:30 p.m. Contact email@example.com for further details on these events and on how to get a Collins Beach parking pass.
