Celebrating Earth Day

Oregon boasts lush forests, towering mountain peaks, rugged, vast beaches, and all the seasons in one year. We love Oregon, and we love the peace and reset nature provides. So this Earth Day, let’s celebrate together.

Surf and Earth

Join Zugh Life Surf Shop for this special event at the Lincoln City Cultural Center. Enjoy live music and surf footage on the big screen. Local food vendors and a variety of surf brands, shapers, photographers and artists all congregating together to celebrate Earth Day. Stick around for the raffle and you might even walk away with a new surfboard! New surfers, experienced surfers and spectators are all welcome!

Cascade Head

Enjoy this world-class hike with an awe-inspiring panorama of the Pacific! Head to the top of Cascade Head through the lower trailhead and immerse yourself in the towering Sitka spruce trees until you make it out to a meadow with sweeping views of the ocean and Salmon River Estuary, it's a perfect spot for a picnic. Cascade Head is nestled into the only UNESCO Biosphere in Oregon and one of just a few on the West Coast. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) seeks to build peace through international cooperation in education, the sciences, and culture. Thanks to the Nature Conservancy and others, Cascade Head Biosphere is protected and will remain a thriving place for nature and wildlife. So come, take a walk through the woods, stare out over the sea, and observe the wildlife - like herds of elk and the endangered silverspot butterfly.

Two closure orders exist in the Cascade Head area: (1) Forest Road 1861 due to 2021 landslides until further notice and (2) a natural resource-related seasonal closure Jan. 1-July 15.

Oregon Spring Cleanup

Oregon's annual, statewide Earth Day event is presented by SOLVE. For over fifty years they have support the efforts of community leaders around the state in motivating everyone to take care of their special place in Oregon. Join this effort Saturday, April 22nd, 2023.

Trash on our beaches is ongoing - bring a bag with you next time you head to the beach and collect trash along the way. If we all work together, we'll make a difference.

Earth Day Floats

It wouldn't be Earth Day without a Finders Keepers Special Drop! April 21st - 23rd you may get lucky enough to stumble upon an Earth Day inspired float by some of our amazing artists. Don't forget to bring a bag and pick up some trash while you're out there! You can submit a photo and be entered into a monthly drawing for our Trash for Treasures program. Plus, it's Earth Day and we should be taking care of our amazing planet on this day, and every day in between.
