At the end of each year, we want to be sure we take the time to reflect and communicate our accomplishments and hard work throughout the year to all of our members, volunteers and contributors. Every water quality sample, every piece of debris from cleanups and every individual volunteer action represents our powerful grassroots when scaled collectively each year. It’s the tireless efforts of the individuals that we call Surfrider – without further ado, here’s the Newport Chapter’s 2015 topline summary
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 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.
