Earth Day Cleanup for Newport Beach on April 25

Our Earth Day cleanup was a great success. Thanks to all of our 130 volunteers (mostly from local high schools and colleges. And a special thanks to Kimberly Buss, and Jian Peng of Orange County Public Works. OCPW partners up with our chapter when we enter the channel for these very important cleanups. We retrieved well over 1000 pounds of trash out of the channel in a mere 2 hours. Our next cleanup inside the channel will be September for the Coastal Cleanup Day.

Certificates for community hours were given to all interested.

Bottle fill station party on April 18 at 9:30 AM until 11:30 AM

What kind of party? Our chapter has partnered with No Beach Plastic and the city of Newport Beach to have a very expensive bottle refill station installed on the beach at 15th street. We are really happy that we have achieved this with our partners. Come celebrate with a beach cleanup and after party to raise more money for more stations.

RockWaterRelay was a success

Just an FYI and to leave this on our web site for a while longer as a placeholder. The race was awesome. So many people had so much fun and the bike trail has never looked so clean as members of teams cleaned up between stops. Thanks to all of the runners. Thanks to our sponsors; Shop3Thirty, Keane coffee, Cabo Chips, Newport Rib Company, HDX Fit, and Newmeyer and Dillon.

Special Thanks to Robyn Vettraino for organizing and operating this event for the 8th year in a row.

 

 

 

The Surfrider Foundation RockWaterRelay 2015 race is Saturday! A couple reminders before the race;

1. It will be hot, so please plan accordingly. Stay hydrated and might we suggest sunscreen. For hydration on the course, we will have some water at the stations and some paper cups. You are encouraged to bring your own cold water and re-usable water bottles along the course for your team.

2. Race t-shirt pick up and check-in starts at 8:30 at the first stop. The parking for the start near the Honda Center is in the adjacent office building parking. There will be signs to the start which is on the trail near the tables and open space. The race will start at 9 am. Each team is responsible for getting each runner to their stop. Use the map, also available on our website, and plan your route of travel.

We will have food from Newport Beach Rib Company, Cabo Chips, and other post-race snacks from Trader Joes. Please remember your cold refreshments to keep hydrated.

4.

Damnation Movie Screening at The Camp

Join us for a viewing of DamNation.

Wednesday December 10 at 6PM

Patagonia/SEED-People’s Market at The Camp. Showing will be at ‘The Treehouse’ on the rooftop. Enter up the stairs past the yoga studio.

RSVP here

This powerful film odyssey across America explores the sea change in our national attitude from pride in big dams as engineering wonders to the growing awareness that our own future is bound to the life and health of our rivers. Dam removal has moved beyond the fictional Monkey Wrench Gang to go mainstream. Where obsolete dams come down, rivers bound back to life, giving salmon and other wild fish the right of return to primeval spawning grounds, after decades without access. DamNation’s majestic cinematography and unexpected discoveries move through rivers and landscapes altered by dams, but also through a metamorphosis in values, from conquest of the natural world to knowing ourselves as part of nature.
