Let's Talk Sustainability at Seaside Institute: The Washed Ashore Project
The Washed Ashore Project is an organization based in Bandon, Oregon that collects trash from beaches and turns them into beautiful pieces of art! These works of art are used to educate the public and inspire change. The Seaside Institute and The Washed Ashore Project are collaborating on a presentation this December. We have big plans for 2018 and we need you to come out and get involved.
Ready to see some real change on 30A regarding our sustainability efforts? We are too. Join us this December to learn more about the Washed Ashore Project and what the Seaside Institute plans to accomplish in the coming years.
