Skimmers splash into Newport Harbor!

Join Clean Ocean Access, 11thHour Racing, and the City of Newport for launch of the 2nd season of the Newport Harbor Trash Skimmers (NHTS). A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at Perrotti Park in Downtown Newport on Friday, April 21 at 10AM, followed by a big announcement! Guests are encouraged to arrive at 9:45AM to be treated to hot coffee provided by Empire Tea & Coffee.

The goal of the NHTS project, made possible by funding from 11th Hour Racing, is to reduce the amount of marine debris in the Newport harbor, increase the recreational value of the waterfront, bring awareness to the types of re-accumulating debris, and promote environmental stewardship.
