Historic Cemeteries Clean Up at Oceanview Cemetery

Astoria Parks and Recreation is partnering with statewide non-profit SOLVE, and the Oregon Commission on Historic Cemeteries for a statewide cemetery clean-up day on May 12th from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.

The event will be the first ever, statewide historic cemetery clean-up with the goal of bringing as many volunteers out to as many cemeteries across Oregon as possible.

Interested persons may contact Maintenance Supervisor, Jonah Dart-Mclean at

always eager to provide volunteer opportunities. Please reach out to Jonah Dart-Mclean to discuss future park clean-ups or information on adopting a park.
