The next scheduled AANR-NW Government Affairs Team (GAT) nude beach clean-ups are as follows:
Saturday, September 27 at 10:00 a.m. at Rooster Rock State Park. This is a three hour clothing optional event, for those cleaning in the nude area. Hats are advised. Volunteers do not have to pay the day use fee. Tell the person in the booth that you are a clean-up volunteer. Barbequed hot dogs, minor snacks and cold beverages will be provided. Gather at far east end of parking lot.
Sunday, September 28- Sauvie Island- Collins Beach – clean-up at 1:00 p.m. – A parking pass is normally required but we have worked with SOLVE and have a clean-up day waiver of the fee on the day we clean the beach and parking area. Contact me to get one as we approach the chosen date. Again, a hot dog barbeque is scheduled after the event. Meet on the beach near the second Collins nude beach opening (number 3 opening). 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 the first Collins nude beach opening (number two marked opening) to the opening marked number six. This event is last around two hours.
These clean-ups are a good way for us to let the public know about our community involvement. We are doing these in conjunction with SOLVE and the Oregon state parks department .sign-ups on the SOLVE website areas now in place: http://www.solv.org/get-involved/events/rooster-rock-nude-beach-cleanup and http://www.solv.org/get-involved/events/collins-beach-cleanup .
Saturday, September 27 is National Public Lands day. 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?
