Newport Chapter

News: Blue-Water Task Force

Mind the logs at Agate Beach

Someone has taken it upon themselves to place a make-shift, unplumbed toilet in the woods and near the creek, just south of the agate Beach Trail and access. That’s right a porcelain throne, brimming with excrement, swiftly delivering poop and pathogens into the lineup of one of your favorite surf spots. A wag of the finger, make that the middle, to the individual that has prioritized their bow constraints over the health and well-being of the many that utilize this beach and ocean environment.

Newport Helo Saved…for now

Newport Chapter of Surfrider Foundation has played an active supporting role for the past 4 months to help ensure the Coast Guard’s helicopter, an important tool in protecting recreational lives and the environment on the central coast, remained in Newport after an announcement earlier this year that the USCG was closing the station and moving to North Bend. Beginning as a local campaign led by the Fishermen’s Wives, the effort scaled to our congressional delegates who helped secure funding for another year.
