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!

At the end of each year, we want to be sure we take the time to reflect and communicate our accomplishments and hard work throughout the year to all of our members, volunteers and contributors. 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
The Portland Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation has active programs and campaigns both in the Portland area as well as our adopted north coast region from Pacific City to Astoria. The Chapter’s work is focused on protecting and testing water quality through our Blue Water Task Force program, ocean friendly gardens, Hold On To Your Butts campaign, and developing education and stewardship activities related to the recently established Cape Falcon Marine Reserve through our Oswald West Action Days.
