The Washed Ashore Project turns marine debris into art and awareness to save the sea.
Washed Ashore enlists volunteers to clean up the beaches. The debris is returned to their workshop where it serves as material for sculptures and displays to educate people about marine pollution. The best work even goes on tour!
I spend a lot of time in tide pools and I feel like I’ve seen some amazing ones, but when I came upon the display above, the beauty and diversity pretty much knocked me off my feet.
That’s right, a starfish.
If you live in the area or are planning a visit to the southern Oregon coast, you can volunteer at the workshop.
