Coastal Clean Up 2014


Press Release: National Parks Conservation Association

attachmentJoin NPCA on April 19, 2014 as we partner with other environmental groups to remove debris from Washington beaches.  Household plastics, garbage and other manmade debris are polluting our ocean, killing our marine wildlife, and spoiling our beaches and collectively we can do something about it!

This is your opportunity to be a part of the largest coastal cleanup event of the year. Last year a combined 1,000 volunteers removed over 15 tons of oceanic garbage!

We will meet at the Kalaloch Campground Saturday morning and carpool to South Beach for coastal debris removal. Olympic National Park is providing free camping at Kalaloch Campground both Friday and Saturday evenings. The event organizers, CoastSavers, will host a barbeque cookout at the campground Saturday afternoon.  We encourage everyone to stay and explore the breathtaking coastlines and rainforests found in this area.
