Surfrider Foundation Newport-Bend Chapter KickOff

Posted on in category River

As our surfing and paddling community grows and many shuffle between Bend and the Oregon coast, we hope to activate our water conservation community in protecting our rivers, lakes, streams and ocean. Come join this group as they kick off the Bend chapter of the Newport-Bend Surfrider Foundation. More INFO HERE!

Thanks to Deschutes Brewery for supporting with location, free food and beer! REI will have swag for all those who sign-up to be surfrider members.  Local non profits will also be there; Bend Park and Rec will present a brainstorming session on how we all can work together for better water quality and conservation in Central Oregon.

Come join for networking, brainstorming, food, drinks, swag and how you can be active in water conservation. Some areas we will examine- measuring water quality, Ditch the Straws, Hold your Butts, Stop Plastic Bags, River Friendly Gardens, River Clean-ups, surfing and paddling competitions, social events and what policy and advocacy work we should focus on in Central Oregon.
