Surfrider Foundation has taken to the streets and neighborhoods to protect our oceans with their Ocean Friendly Gardens program.
Surfrider - The Surfrider Foundation’s Ocean Friendly Gardens program undertook an awesome effort in 2014, detailed in a newly released annual report. Surfrider chapters, volunteers, student clubs and staff that make up the program implemented an interconnected set of program objectives. They educated the public about a watershed approach to urban runoff, conducted hands-on activities for DIY-ers and to help train professionals, and engaged government agencies to shift policy and programming. A total of 33 chapters or school clubs participated in 2014, offering a spectrum of activities including classes, hands-on workdays, neighborhood walks, policy meetings with government officials and more.
