25TH ANNUAL ABBOT KINNEY FESTIVAL: SURFRIDER FOUNDATION

Today I went to the fanta-bulous Venice festival and will be sharing about it all week! My friend Renee the volunteer extraordinaire was there at the Surfrider Foundation booth this morning. I missed her, but I got a picture of the booth with the latest volunteers. Notice the phone number on the sign if you wish to volunteer.

Surfrider Foundation is a non-profit organization with over 90 chapters worldwide. The mission is simple:  protect the world's oceans, waves, and beaches for people's access and pleasure through research, education, conservation and activism.

Heal The Bay is another non-profit organization. What distinguishes Heal The Bay from the Surfrider Foundation is that its main focus is on Southern California. The current goals for 2010 are environmental education in all California schools, safe swimming beaches in every Santa Monica Bay, create Santa Monica Bay marine protected areas, include filter systems on 50,000 storm drain catch basins, and environmentally restore the Malibu Lagoon. Those are some hefty worthy goals all locals should support. These gentlemen were volunteering to "man the booth" and politely posed for the blog. Way to go dudes! Surfs Up.
