UPCOMING EVENTS

CHAPTER MEETING
October 25, Wednesday 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
The Rapp Saloon, 1436 2nd St, Santa Monica, 90401

Clean water, healthy beaches, accessible coasts, plastic-free shorelines—these are all things that our activists and volunteers are fighting for every single day.

With recent scale backs in support to government agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency, and the proposition of new offshore oil drilling along our coasts, Surfrider’s work in protecting and fighting for what we love, is more important than ever. Our ocean faces a growing number of threats each and every day and now, more than ever, we ask you to join the fight for clean water and healthy beaches.

Join us this Wednesday for our monthly chapter meeting as we round out the summer and transition to fall. We’ll be discussing current programs, campaigns, and the various ways you can support your local Surfrider chapter! All ages welcome! Chapter meetings are always free and open to all Surfrider members and non-members. See you there!
