The Tsunami Surfers are collecting baseline data and will be monitoring change on their stretch of beach. The NOAA Marine Debris Monitoring program and the 4H Surfrider Surf and Stewardship club will be surveying our stretch of beach for two years to see if there is a change in trash from the Japanese tsunami of 2011. Who knew picking up trash was so much fun?
The Coos Bay Surfrider Chapter sponsored its first beach cleanup this weekend at Lighthouse Beach at 10AM on Sunday, July 8th. 22 volunteers from the community removed two truckloads of debris from the beach, including a large dock that has been sitting on the beach for months. Volunteers used crowbars and hammers to dismantle the dock, taking care to leave the styrofoam core intact. The Coos Bay Chapter is actively seeking new members and volunteers to help keep our beaches and waters clean and safe for our community.

Floras Lake State Park and the Blacklock Point area still need us — Sept. 14 at 5pm, Docia Sweet Hall at the Fairgrounds Event Center in Gold Beach! At a series of recent Town Hall meetings, Curry County Commissioner George Rhodes finally unveiled long-secret plans to develop two golf courses, one on the shores of Floras Lake and another atop bluffs that are now part of Floras Lake State Park. Kalmiopsis Audubon members and friends have been leading the charge presenting impressive, substantive, and inspiring comments at several meetings already, so let’s be sure and give them and the coast we need in this important meeting—which may count the most. There will be a car pool leaving the Langlois Lions Club at 3:30 and from the Port Orford Library at 4:00 pm. And we encourage Brookings members and friends to carpool from the south. If anyone’s up for pizza afterwards, at least a few of us will head for the Panther’s Den, on the east side of 101 toward the center/south end of Gold Beach.
We hope to see you at this very important meeting. At this crucial juncture, the future of our beloved place depends on us. Read more.
