Come join the Newport Chapter of Surfrider Foundation for their first beach cleanup of the year on Saturday, Jan. 18, at 11 a.m. Volunteers will meet in the parking lot at Agate Beach State Recreation Site next to the Best Western Hotel in Newport. Bags and rubber gloves will be provided, but volunteers are encouraged to bring their own.

The recent king tides, big swells and strong west winds have pushed debris onto the beaches.

It’s going to be cold and wet, but this important work needs to be done. Dress appropriately and join the effort. Newport’s beaches are worth protecting.

This will be the first in Surfrider’s 2020 beach cleanup series. More dates will be announced soon.
