Coos Bay ChapterThe Coos Bay Chapter is dedicated to the protection of oceans, waves and beaches in the greater Coos County area More Details
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.
