Mark your calendars for the 2018 Beach Cleanups. Surfrider Foundation invites everyone to participate in collecting beach litter and marine debris. The Newport Chapter will provide supplies and crew leaders.  Volunteers are encouraged to bring reusable gloves and buckets. This is an opportunity to work locally on an important environmental issue (clean beaches) and have fun. The day will be family friendly, so bring the kids to the beach.
