Description
The Surfrider Foundation is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world's ocean, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network.

Program areas at Surfrider Foundation

Various environmental activities such as grass roots volunteer organizing, promoting reduction in single use plastics, promoting ocean friendly garden techniques, promoting beach water quality, beach access and beach and wave preservation.
Clean water initiative - we protect our coastal waterways, communities, and wildlife from water pollution by focusing on two main programs. These programs are The blue water task force (bwtf) and ocean friendly gardens (ofg). Chapters also run campaigns against projects that will cause pollution and advocate for wise management of our land and water resources.
Chapter assistance - we developed training materials, trained and assisted volunteers with campaign planning, and facilitated The chapters in their grass roots activist works.
