The annual SOLVE Beach & Riverside Cleanup comes to Manzanita on Saturday, September 29 from 10 am to 1 pm. It’s a chance to pitch in and help tidy up our beautiful stretch of beach. Join SOLVE and thousands of volunteers this weekend to support the health of our public beaches, neighborhoods, and natural areas, while cleaning up litter from source to sea!
Did you know that an estimated eight million tons of plastic enter the global ocean every year, impacting nearly 600 species of marine animals? Even the smallest bits of trash can be harmful. Cigarette butts, tiny pieces of plastic, and Styrofoam flow into storm drains, then directly to our streams, rivers, and ocean, where they look like food to many animals. Over the past decade, SOLVE volunteers have kept more than 4,000 tons of debris from entering Oregon waterways and the Pacific Ocean.
