Clean up the Oregon Coast
Date: September 25 2010 10:00am - 1:00pm Location: stunning Oregon Coast
VOLUNTEER BEACH CLEAN-UP & PICNIC ON THE OREGON COAST
The first all-volunteer beach cleanup in the nation was held here in Oregon in 1984. Since then, annual volunteer beach cleanups have spread to all 50 states and nearly 100 countries around the globe. In 2008, nearly 4000,000 volunteers picked up 6.8 million pounds of trash from nearly every major body of water worldwide.
We will drive to the coast in the morning, spend the afternoon on the beach, enjoy lunch provided by ELC, return to Portland in the late afternoon. New to Oregon? Visiting the coast is completely mandatory. Feel free to consider arranging your own transportation and camping overnight.
NOTE: This is a great way to build volunteer hours for students wishing to apply for PILP Stipends.
