Our upcoming cleanups for 2016 are

April 23rd (funded by Pacific County Marine Resource Committee)

and July 5th (depending on funding) for more info email Shelly@NWIFservices.com

We lost an amazing volunteer recently, Bob Frost.  His commitment to our environment and wonderful good nature will sorely be missed.  Much love to Bob’s family!


              We are a 501c3 and have begun to solicit Lifetime members at $100 each and Lifetime sponsors at $1000 each  (we will list the sponsors  – if desired).  We hope to raise another $83,000 – that will allow us to become sustainable in perpetuity budget.  Help us spread the word!   

Mail checks to: GrassRoots Garbage Gang at PO Box 1480, Ocean Park WA 98640

 On Washington State’s southernmost coast, we boast 28 miles of sandy Pacific Ocean beach.  Like beaches everywhere, it sees a tremendous amount of humanity’s garbage being tossed or washed ashore.

In 2001, a group of local residents began an all-volunteer effort to tackle the garbage along these beaches.   We’ve completed over 35 cleanups and collected nearly 250 tons!

We call ourselves the GrassRoots Garbage Gang because that’s what we are,  a very grassroots group of folks who are distressed by the trash on the beaches. Since that time, the effort has mushroomed, with volunteers coming from all over the state to help out at one or all three of the annual cleanups.
