Fall Beach Cleanup day, September 17
Columbia County Fair 4-H results
Saturday, September 17,
marks the date for the 22nd an-
nual Great Oregon Fall Beach
Cleanup. The event will take
place from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00
p.m. along the entire Oregon
coast, from the Washington to
the California borders. Volun-
teers may check in at one of 42
meeting sites, pick up a litter
bag, and head down to the
beach to help improve the
coast for wildlife and winter vis-
itors. Coordinators suggest vol-
unteers bring gloves, wear stur-
dy shoes, and be safe while
having a good time! Groups of
20 or more are asked to regis-
ter in advance by calling the
appropriate Zone Captain. Visit
the web site at <>
or call SOLV at 800-333-SOLV
for a list of Registration Sites
and Zone Captains.
Following are partial results
from the 4-H competition at the
Columbia County Fair. Due to
space limitations, only results
within The Independent’s circu-
lation area are included. More
results will be published in the
October 6 issue of The Inde-
pendent .
Volunteers can save time
and avoid waiting in line at the
beach by using “Express
Check-In.” The Volunteer Reg-
istration and Waiver form can
be completed before the event.
The form should be printed and
signed, then turned in at the
beach to the SOLV representa-
tive at the registration table. In-
structions and forms can be
found on SOLV’s web site.
Last fall, more than 2,700
volunteers removed 21 tons of
trash from Oregon’s beaches.
Many interesting items were
found including a hot water
heater, a kitchen sink, a fire-
place grate, and five sleeping
The first statewide beach
cleanup in the nation was held
in Oregon in 1984. Since then,
twice annual beach cleanups
have continued and over the
years, 156,000 volunteers have
removed 929 tons of trash from
Oregon’s coastline. Beach
cleanups have spread to every
state in the Union and 87 coun-
tries around the world.
“This is a great opportunity
for Oregonians and visitors
alike to take an active part in
preserving and enhancing this
great state’s public beaches,”
says Executive Director Jack
Organizers want volunteers
to have a fun and safe experi-
ence. Everyone should take
safety precautions while on the
beach; don’t turn your back on
the ocean, watch for sneaker
waves, don’t play on or around
logs, and be aware of incoming
