State Parks participates in Washington Coast Cleanup on April 23

OLYMPIA – April 5, 2022 – As a member of the Washington Clean Coast Alliance, the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission will participate in this year’s Washington Coast Cleanup. 

The event will take place from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 23. 

Along with Parks, many other collaborating partners like Surfrider and the Grassroots Garbage Gang will help clean the coastal beaches. Thousands of volunteers come out every year to remove several tons of marine debris from Washington’s Pacific Coast and Salish Sea. Beach cleanups allow family and friends to have fun and participate in a meaningful activity. 

There are multiple state park locations for people to participate, including:

  • Northern Shores: Chance A La Mer, Ocean City Beach Approach
  • South Beach: Twin Harbors Bonge Approach
  • Long Beach: Bolstad Beach Approach

Visit Coastsavers.org to learn more about the cleanup, view a list of all participating beaches and pre-register for the event. 

Volunteers should dress for varied and changing weather conditions, wear sturdy footwear and pack a lunch with plenty of water. On arrival, there will be a check in station where participants will receive supplies to help them pick up debris. Organizers encourage helpers to bring reusable gloves.
