Thanks to all those who attended last nights chapter social at Oly Taproom. We watched some surf videos, enjoyed pints, and had a Surfrider themed trivia with some fancy items handed out. We also shared ideas on future programs and campaigns to get involved with so please subscribe to our newsletter on the right side of your screen so you can stay up to date on all our work!

On July 5th, Capitol chapter members, along with Washington CoastSavers and hundreds of concerned local citizens came together to clean up beaches up and down the coast. Over 115 tons of firework debris, food and beverage containers, and other types of trash were collected and removed from our shorelines. Public comment hearings are currently in the works, aiming to come up with a solution for limiting this Patriotic debris. Check out Not a Ban A Better Plan‘s community Facebook page for updates.
In case you missed it chapter members met at Kalaloch Lodge to hit the beaches for yoga and a cleanup. It was a perfect day and we look forward to more events on the coast. Would you like to get involve? Sign-up for our newsletter to learn more about upcoming activities.
