From cleaning up ocean pollution, to testing our coastal waters, as well as reducing single use plastics, our programs ensure that our marine ecosystems stay protected.

Beach Cleanups

The South Sound Chapter hosts monthly beach cleanups the 2nd Saturday of the month throughout the Puget Sound Region. Locations and times vary due to the tide. Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram for full event details. 

The Surfrider beach cleanup program tackles the ocean litter issue through action and community service. Join us and volunteer at a cleanup as we are all part of the solution. Together we can restore our coastlines, one beach at a time!



Blue Water Task Force

The South Sound Blue Water Task Force is our volunteer water testing, education, and advocacy program. Our task force volunteers collect data and results from testing sites to alert the public and officials within the Puget Sound about water quality issues.

Ocean Friendly Restaurants

The South Sound Ocean Friendly Restaurants program tackles plastic pollution at its source. One restaurant, one customer at a time, it increases awareness on single use plastic within the restaurant industry, drives behavior change, and ultimately creates a scalable impact to reduce our plastic footprint.
