Thanks to OPC Volunteers-Twin Rivers Cleanup

OPC Surfrider wants to thank the following chapter members for donating their time and labor to clean up the beach at Twin Rivers this weekend:

Sarah and Eric Waterkotte
Darryl Wood
Arnold Schouten
Kendra Parks

Altogether they collected 15+ bags of garbage, glass, plastic and aluminum that will now not end up in the surf zone.

We owe a huge debt of appreciation for these volunteers for improving our local surf environment. Thank you.

Twin Rivers Beach Cleanup-Saturday, February 21, 2009 at 10:00 am

The Olympic Peninsula Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation will be having a beach cleanup at Twin Rivers on Saturday, February 21, 2009, at 10:00 am.

We will meet at the parking lot between East and West Twin Rivers at 10:00 am and walk the beach and parking area picking up trash.

We will then move up to the adjacent La Farge property and have an orientation on our monitoring points and inspection route. We will also cover the data reporting forms.

Please dress appropriately (rain gear, mud boots, gloves) and bring lunch and water.

It should be good time!

Hope to see you there. If you have any questions please give Dave Parks a call at 360-480-7312.
