About Us

The Portland Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation’s work is focused keeping it clean upstream through our programs including #DitchTheStrawPDX, Ocean Friendly Restaurants, Green Streets,  Hold On To Your Butt programs and our Blue Water Task Force water quality monitoring program out on the north coast.
