Friday March 8 2024 12:55 PST Olympic National Park News Release Washington Coastal Cleanup to be held on Saturday, April 20 PORT ANGELES, Wash. Every April, thousands of volunteers descend upon over 300-miles of shoreline in Washington State to participate in the annual Washington Coastal Cleanup (WCC) and remove tons of trash. Olympic National Park is just one of many partners participating in this annual event with several beaches in the park selected for clean-up on Saturday, April 20. Some of these coastal areas are part of the Daniel J. Evans Wilderness and all park beaches will present unique challenges for participants. Motor vehicles are not allowed on any park beach, and all litter or debris must be removed on foot. Camping in the coastal campgrounds of Olympic National Park (Kalaloch, Mora, and Ozette) will be free for pre-registered volunteers. Volunteers can choose one night of free camping, either April 19th or 20th. Backcountry permit fees will also be waived for pre-registered volunteer participants staying overnight at South Sand Point. Backcountry permits for any other area will be at the regular permit rates and subject to availability. Volunteers who elect to camp a night in the backcountry at Ozette can do so in addition to one optional night at the Ozette campground on April 18th, 19th, or 20th. The deadline to pre-register is April 12 at 10 PM. To register, see the links below: Mora Beaches- Kalaloch Beaches- Ozette Beaches- Walkup registration is possible, but not guaranteed. Registration tables will be open from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM at the Three Rivers Volunteer Fire Department and Kalaloch Campground. The registration table at the Ozette trailhead will be open 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM on April 19th and from 7:00 AM to 12:00 PM on April 20th. At some locations, such as Cape Alava and Sand Point, dedicated volunteers must hike several miles just to reach the beach, then, gather trash and haul it back to the trailhead at Lake Ozette. Besides using garbage bags to clear debris, some volunteers tie multiple buoys or floats to their framed backpacks while others may roll out automobile tires one by one. These incredible efforts by volunteers and staff help keep the beaches of Olympic National Park looking clean. -NPS-
