Coastal Commission Hearing On Banning Ranch

The Coastal Commission Hearing on Banning Ranch will be on October 7, 2015 at 9 AM at the Long Beach Convention Center, Seaside Ballroom, 300 E. Ocean Avenue in Long Beach.

Please see our statement on Banning Ranch here.

We believe the Coastal Commission can help to promote improved water quality with a plan to treat the existing and additional runoff and remediate the site responsibly.

This will improve the water quality at our local River Jetties surf break as well as the entire Newport Beach and Huntington Beach Coast.

Please attend this meeting and make your voice heard to the Coastal Commission for improved water quality on the site. Contact for more details.

Beach Tribute Album to benefit our Chapter

Thanks to Kaelah Wilson who created this soundtrack with the help of some friends to benefit Surfrider Foundation Newport Beach Chapter. The Album is called IE (Inland Empire) to the Sea.  Kaelah is into music and the beach and is aware of the challenges the Ocean has because of urban runoff. This Album has a variety of artists and represents the unique talents of those artists who live right here in our watershed. You can sample the music here and if you would like to buy it that is easy too. Just follow the prompts.
