June Cape Cove Beach Cleanup
Join us on the beach for a marine debris cleanup at Cape Cove Beach. This project is great for anyone who would like to give 1-2 hours of their time, contribute to science and clean up beaches touching Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve and Protected Areas. Please meet at the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center and walk down to the beach from there. The path is mostly paved, but the gravel trail to beach access includes stairs. Sturdy shoes are recommended.
We will survey 100 yards of Cape Cove Beach. This includes flat sandy beach, wood debris, cobble rocks and lava rock. Most of the debris we find is located in the rocky and woody areas. After the survey, we will collect our finds, sort and document. The plastic items are kept for re-use in various projects.
If you have your own bucket and gloves, please feel free to bring them with you. No bucket, no worries! We will provide bags and we try to have a couple of gloves to use if needed.
