JEFFREY P. MAYOR

Registration is open for the April 19 Washington Coast Beach Cleanup, which will take place on more than 40 beaches.

Those interested in helping are asked to register at coastsavers.org. Washington CoastSavers is a group of more than 1,000 volunteers who remove trash for beaches.

The April 19 event will remove trash from beaches in state and national parks as well as tribal beaches.

 

“With over 70 miles of wild Pacific Coast, responding to the daily arrival of marine debris along our remote shoreline is not something we are able (to) accomplish alone,” Olympic National Park Superintendent Sarah Creachbaum said in statement released by CoastSavers. “We are grateful for the partnerships that make this clean-up possible and for the thousands of volunteers who dedicate their valuable free time to care for and protect our coast. We would not be able to preserve the park’s incredible resources without them.”
