Marine Debris Cleanup



Marine Debris Cleanup

Newport, Oregon

From 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM

About this Event

True Wildlife and Albany Scuba, in cooperation with SOLVE, will be hosting an underwater cleanup event under the Newport public pier on Saturday, April 17th.

Scuba divers will be cleaning up litter, debris, crab pots and fishing equipment under the pier. Volunteers on the pier will be dropping ropes and buckets to the divers and pulling up the debris. All the debris will be taken to a sorting area to be weighed and sorted into recyclables, reusables or disposables.

Volunteer opportunities:

Scuba Divers:  

If you are a certified diver and would like to show immense stewardship of our oceans then come dive with us! Tanks and air will be provided by Albany Scuba.

Free Divers:

Grab your wet suit and gear to help clean up our bay.

Pier/sorting volunteers:

If you are not a diver, we could use your help pulling up crab traps and buckets, and moving debris to the sorting area.

Masks are required for all volunteers. 

Join us in the fight against marine debris!

Volunteer sign up is through SOLVE Oregon
