Save Our Surf Celebration

It’s amazing how wonderful the outcome is when people passionate about the same thing come together and unite! Celebrating a 20 year partnership with Couch Distributing, Surfrider Santa Cruz and iHeartMedia hosted over 100 volunteers for a beach clean up on Seabright Beach this past Saturday. The collaboration made it possible for us to have free food (provided by Shoppers Corner and Surfrider), drinks (beer provided by Couch), a DJ (Showbiz), and two live bands (with an energetic set from Tingly and Aloha feel from The Wave Tones).

Annual Coastal Cleanup

Join us as Surfrider’s hosts our usual spot at Moran Lake Beach for the Annual Coastal Cleanup, is the world’s largest volunteer effort for the ocean. The clean up is from 9-12, on Saturday, September 19th. Every year, hundreds of thousands of volunteers remove millions of pounds of trash from beaches across the globe. The more hands we have helping, the more pollution we can prevent from entering our beautiful ocean and endangering marine wildlife. Last year, our community of volunteers managed to remove 24,379 pounds of debris. That’s equivalent to 37 adult male sea lions! We hope to see you there! RSVP here (optional)

Water Supply for Santa Cruz: The Future

As we wind down from our latest summer season of drought we, as a community, need to pat ourselves on the back. We not only met the challenge laid out for us by the state and the city for water savings but we exceeded them to the tune of 31.5% average savings for June and July. The responsiveness of our community has allowed us to weather this extended drought but looking forward we want to be able to take on future challenges that arise, like climate change and flows for fish habitat.
