Join National Parks Conservation Association as they team up with Washington CoastSavers and other partners to clean our coastal beaches on Saturday, April 29, in Olympic National Park.
Governor Jay Inslee designated April 29 as Washington Coast Cleanup Day, providing a great opportunity to explore and give back to our coastal national park. This is your opportunity to be a part of the largest coastal cleanup event of the year. Last year, 1,400 volunteers removed over 20 tons of garbage from the beaches.
Participants will meet at the Kalaloch Campground on Saturday morning and travel to South Beach and Beach 1 for debris removal. Olympic National Park is providing free camping at Kalaloch campground on both Friday and Saturday nights. There will also be a free barbecue cookout at the campground on Saturday afternoon.
IF YOU GO:
Bring work gloves and layered clothing to help protect you from water, wind and cold. There will be a free barbecue lunch on Saturday, but bring your own food and water for the rest of your stay. Free camping in Olympic National Park is available on a first-come, first-served basis on Friday and Saturday nights – but spots fill up quickly, so plan ahead and arrive early to make sure you have a site. Park entrance fees will also be waived.
On Saturday, check in with us at the Kalaloch Campground between 8 and 9 a.m. They provide trash bags and information, then shuttle folks from the parking lot to our beach cleanup site.
