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
Newport Chapter volunteers visited Salem this past week to talk about some of their priority issues with their elected officials. This legislative session the chapter is interested in a number of bills related to marine debris and coastal planning for climate change, two of which lie within the House Rural Communities Land Use and Water Committee, on which local Representative Gomberg has a seat.
