The Story of Plastic - North Coast OR Free Online Event

Posted on in categories Event , Travel & Adventure

Thursday, June 18, 2020 at 7 pm – 8:30pm, Hosted by Surfrider Foundation North Coast OR Chapter. More INFO HERE!

One benefit of events being moved to online formats is we are able to participate in many more events without physically being there. This shift has opened events to us in Central Oregon like this one from the Surfrider Foundation North Coast OR chapter. They are much more than a group of surfers. They are a dedicated community organization that makes a difference in west coast communities. From cleaning up beaches, to fundraisers for local fire and rescue departments, to hosting learning events like these.

The North Coast OR chapter is very active in Oregon Coast communities and this event is a great way to get involved with this organization and the Oregon Coast.

Join the North Coast Chapter of Surfrider Foundation, Friends of Cape Falcon Marine Reserve, and CoastWatch for a free virtual screening of The Story of Plastic, followed by a Q&A panel discussion at 7:00 pm.

What started as a group of surfers that came together to protect Malibu from over development and pollution has grown into one of the most powerful coastal protection groups in the world. The Surfrider Foundation is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network.
