No better way to celebrate our freedom than to blow up the beaches and leave the toxic debris to be hauled off by the tide, right? Well at least not everyone feels that way… we had a great turnout for our 5th of July cleanup and we’d like to give a HUGE thanks to our partners and all the volunteers who made it happen!

Heads up Portland, your beloved Shorties is now part of an official marine reserve! The Cape Falcon Marine Reserve and Protected Areas went into affect as of January 1, 2016! Marking the start of Oregon’s 5th in a statewide system of reserves and protected areas is certainly something to celebrate and important for recreational users visiting the site to be aware of and support ongoing compliance and stewardship. As if you didn’t need another reason to keep it clean while visiting Short Sands, the designation and implementation of these special ecological protections to conserve ocean wildlife should further reinforce your low-impact visit to Shorties. With kickoff celebrations scheduled by local community groups, there’s many upcoming opportunities to learn more about this newly implemented marine reserve at one of Oregon’s most popular tourism and recreational destinations.

Every water quality sample, every piece of debris from cleanups and every individual volunteer action represents our powerful grassroots when scaled collectively each year. It’s the tireless efforts of the individuals that we call Surfrider – without further ado, here’s the Portland Chapter’s 2015 topline summary
