Thank you to the over 30 volunteers that showed up for the Surfrider Foundation Charlotte Chapter clean up this past Saturday. We were welcomed with sunny, 65 degree spring like weather as well as plenty of work! Over 100 lbs of trash was removed in a very short time. We will be reposting with a recap on the entire event in the upcoming days as well as booking other great opportunities to get out and make a difference. On behalf of the chapter, we thank everyone!

Join us on February 22nd at 10 AM as we host our monthly cleanup at McDowell Park and Nature Preserve. With over 1,100 acres of undeveloped land, the park is one of the most popular in the CharMeck park system. With that popularity brings garbage, plastic water bottles, dirty diapers (yes I have seen diapers on the trails) and tons of fishing line. Check out the event on our Facebook page, invite all your friends, bring the family. Stay tuned for more info as wel get closer to the date.
