Become A Coastal Defender – Join the Surfrider Crew!

The Siuslaw Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation covers the Florence, Oregon region. The Chapter’s work is focused on monitoring water quality through our Blue Water Task Force Program, organizing rapid response beach cleanups, running a monthly marine debris monitoring program, and developing education and stewardship activities related to the recently established Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve.

We are a passionate (and fun loving) group of people who love our ocean, rivers, dunes, forests, waves and beaches. Sound like you? We are looking for more like-minded locals to help us care for these special places.

Come join us at the Beachcomber Pub on Wednesday, September 21st @ 6:30pm where Surfrider Oregon Field Coordinator, Ryan Cruse, will be speaking about the Surfrider mission – who we are, what we do and how you can become a leader in protecting your local coastline.

New volunteers for BWTF at Siuslaw Chapter.

Our Blue Water Task Force (BWTF) had Siuslaw High School student volunteers from the Earth club collecting water from South Jetty and processing samples at the lab in Mapleton this week. Siuslaw Chapter enjoys many partnerships and we proudly house our lab and partner with the Siuslaw Watershed Council on our BWTF Program. To view results and a map of where the chapter samples, visit our chapter’s BWTF Webpage.  It is a great thing to see people from different age groups with the same concern and care for our water quality. Great Job Siuslaw Chapter Volunteers!
