Wow! November’s practically here.

Our first Saturday of the month cleanup will be on November 7 at 9-11 AM just north of the River Jetties in Huntington Beach. We were going to do it at RJ’s but we have a huge group coming so we are doing it at the state beach park for the sake of parking. Come in at the Magnolia entrance and let the guard know you are helping Surfrider Foundation at the Lifeguard 2 area. We actually set up closer to the boardwalk. Make your way south of Magnolia inside the parking lot past the Brookhurst gate and all the way down until you can’t drive anymore. You will see us set up close to the 1st fire ring. We supply the bags and gloves and you need to bring personal items like sunblock etc. Anyone under the age of 18 needs to bring a waiver signed by their parent/guardian. Find a waiver on our website under beach cleanups print it out and bring it to the cleanup with you. We will provide certificates of community service to those who want it.

We need and appreciate your help.

Thanks to kind bar we will have snack bars for you.
