Thank you to all the volunteers who showed up at Big River Beach on June 17th for International Surfing Day Beach Clean-Up! It was a beautiful day out there, and we left our beach in better shape. This is what we found:
On Saturday, June 17, 2017, the Surfrider Foundation will host more than 200 events globally in celebration of the 13th International Surfing Day (ISD), an annual event to raise awareness, engage communities, and help protect our oceans for future generations.
We’re hosting a local International Surfing Day event with a beach clean-up at Big River Beach in Mendocino on Saturday, June 17th from 1:00-3:00pm. People of all ages are invited to join.
We’ll have a table set up at the bottom of the stairs (access from the town of Mendocino) by the volleyball nets. Bring a bucket and gloves for trash pick-up, and let’s clean the beach! Please be sure to deliver your trash back at the registration table — we’ll be weighing and sorting it to add to the global data.
Come be a part of this effort, along with thousands of volunteers from Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Spain, Ghana, Tenerife, South Korea, the US and more!
