Surfrider Foundation, Monterey Chapter


The Surfrider Foundation is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world's ocean, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network.

The Big Idea

Monterey Surfrider leads monthly beach cleanups in our area, but there are many youth groups, businesses, and organizations that want to help pick up trash when our regular volunteers aren't available. With the Beach Cleanup for Everyone program, partner organizations will be given training on how to run a successful cleanup, a sturdy box of all the materials needed, and access to upload data on what they picked up into a national database.

Monterey Surfrider has worked tirelessly in their valiant collaborative work to reduce marine plastic pollution, to effect the closure of the Cemex sand mine in Marina, and to raise community awareness of the renewed threat of exploitative offshore activities.
