Central Long Island: The Central Long Island Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation continued a tradition started after hurricane Sandy in 2012, a clean up of the canal system in Long Beach, NY. Using volunteers on land as well as on stand up paddle boards, they held a successful event that provided an “in” for new volunteers and raised their profile in the community. See photos here.

Ocean City: The Ocean City Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation hosted a happy hour event that checked a lot of boxes: they raised some funds for their Chapter, they cleaned out some old product via raffle giveaways, and they signed up some new members–all with a simple partnership event at a local restaurant! Congratulations OC Chapter! More info here.

Virginia Beach: The Virginia Beach Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation partnered with local brewery O’Connor Brewing Company to help fund rain gardens in their area. Learn more here.
