Change of the Guard…Oregon Field Coordinator Job Opening

Hey Oregon crew, Charlie here…It’s with bitter-sweetness to announce that I have accepted the Oregon Policy Manager position for Surfrider Foundation. For the past 7 and half years it’s been my extreme honor and pleasure to serve you guys in the capacity of Oregon Field Manager for Surfrider Foundation. We’ve grown so much together, both individually and organizationally as a powerful activist force for Oregon’s ocean, waves and beaches. I have no doubt that we’ll continue to grow and strengthen our organization both through your chapter leadership and under the support of the new Oregon Field Coordinator hire.

Surfrider Foundation turns 30

Happy Birthday to you and everyone else who has made Surfrider Foundation so special over the past 30 years! Thirty years ago a group of surfers from Malibu, California, were concerned about the health risks associated with environmental threats posed by escalating coastal development at their favorite surf spot. They took action. Not even they could have envisioned the history they were making when they succeeded in protecting their beloved surf spot.

Nearly 60 chapter leaders came together in Yachats, Oregon, adjacent the spectacular Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve and nearby forested wilderness areas to participate in this year’s event.

Our Beaches are not Ashtrays

Did you know that cigarette butts are the number one item consistently found at beach cleanups? Taking decades to decompose, these tiny items contain plastic, leach harmful toxins that concentrate in the environment, and present dangers to wildlife, children and pets when accidentally consumed. As part of Governor Kitzhaber’s executive order on tobacco use, Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) recently passed rules to make Oregon Parks smoke free; and now, thanks to your advocacy and interest in the environmental health of our ocean and beaches, OPRD has initiated rulemaking to support smoke-free beaches as an expansion of the initial rules prompted by the executive order.
