A new year is upon us. A time to reflect on the previous, get excited for what’s to come and in some cases, a time start a new beginning. 2016 was definitely one for the books. As we reflect back on all that happened, it’s with excitement and a little uncertainty that we see what 2017 has in store. The Charlotte chapter took a little hiatus in the last half of the year to reflect as well. In the coming months you will see a new Charlotte Chapter. A New focus. A New Brand. A New Drive.
Stay tuned and be on the look out for the New Charlotte Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation.
Surfrider’s 12th annual International Surfing Day is coming up quickly! On one day, June 20th, International Surfing Day, we take a moment to reflect on the impact we’ve made, the campaigns we’ve won and the beaches we’ve protected. International Surfing Day is the day to salute your favorite beach! To celebrate, we will be holding a cleanup on the shores of Lake Wylie at McDowell Nature Preserve. Check out the details here.
CELEBRATE A WIN, WATCH GREAT FILMS, AND KEEP STANDING FIRM TO PROTECT OUR COAST.
For months, people on the East Coast have been fighting a proposal to open the east coast to offshore oil and gas drilling. Now we’ve won. The Atlantic has been taken out of the federal proposal for new offshore oil and gas leases.
It’s time to celebrate a win for people power and stay engaged in the longterm work of protecting the oceans.
