The Oregon Shores Conservation Coalition, CoastWatch’s parent group, is celebrating its 50th anniversary year in 2021. We just passed the actual anniversary date, July 29.

On this anniversary weekend, July 30-Aug. 1, we’re asking CoastWatchers to join the celebration in their own way—by monitoring and reporting on their adopted miles. The goal is to see how close we can come to getting every mile of Oregon’s coast surveyed on that long weekend. (If mile adopters pick up debris while walking their miles, this will also serve as a major beach-cleaning effort into the bargain.)

If you aren’t already a CoastWatcher, this would be a great time to adopt a mile of shoreline and help us close in on the goal of covering the entire Oregon coast each quarter.

For more information about CoastWatch reporting, whether for this weekend or generally, contact Jesse Jones, CoastWatch volunteer coordinator, (503) 989-7244, [email protected].
