Beach Cleanups – Big Success!

This past weekend Surfrider Newport and Portland Chapters participated in SOLV’s annual Spring Beach Cleanup by captaining 3 different area cleanups on the north and central coast (South Beach State Park, Lost Creek State Park and Gearhart State Park. Volunteers from all over Oregon participated in the cleanup efforts. South Beach and Lost Creek had a combined show of over 200 volunteers and 100s of bags of trash. Some of the odder finds: boat hull, truck liner, 5 gallon container of diesel still full (pictured), 12 foot floating dock! Big thanks to all who participated and special thanks to Abby McCarthy, Joe and Jes Haxel, Noelle Saint-Cyr and Andi Bernard for captaining our sites!

Marine Reserves: Ocean Recreation Input

On March 13, the Oregon Marine Reserves Working Group met in Salem to discuss plans to expand the group to include additional stakeholders and members of the public. The work group is part of the Ocean Policy Advisory Council (OPAC) and is charged with identifying alternatives for establishing a network of marine reserves in Oregon. They are seeking to add 8-10 members from the public, and a formal announcement for interested applicants will go out soon. It was great to learn that Oregon Chapter’s request for multiple slots representing the “ocean recreation” demographic (e.g surfers, kayakers, windsurfers, divers, kiteboarders, etc) has garnered significant support. More info on how to apply will be available soon. If you’re interested in learning more, contact Pete pstauffer@surfrider.org.

Crab Pots in Brookings

On December 9th, 2006, the fishing vessel Chevelle discarded 283 commercial crab pots at the Chetco River bar mouth during heavy weather. Most of these crab pots have yet to be removed, and many have drifted shoreward, threatening surf access and littering the beach. Surfrider activists on the south coast are working with agency staff and community leaders to get the problem fixed. Yesterday, we got some good news as State Parks has scheduled removal of the pots on the beach for late March. But still no solution yet for the remainder of the pots in the subtidal. Formal inquiries have been made to the US Coast Guard and Department of State Lands to determine jurisdiction for this issue. And many thanks to Surfrider members in Washington State for helping identify technical expertise and potential funding sources to support removal of this derelict gear.
