Programs

From testing our coastal waters to ensuring that runoff stays in your garden to reducing plastic pollution, Surfrider's programs help ensure that our marine ecosystems are protected.

Beach Cleanup Experience Days

A Surfrider Foundation program to tackle the ocean litter issue – primarily caused by plastic pollution - through education for action, citizen science, and campaigns. We are all part of the solution and together we can restore our coastlines, one beach at a time.

Blue Water Task Force

The Blue Water Task Force (BWTF), is the Surfrider Foundation's volunteer-run, water testing, education and advocacy program. Along with Surfrider chapters across the country, we use this program to alert citizens and officials in our community about water quality problems and to work toward solutions.

Ocean Friendly Restaurants

The Surfrider Foundation’s Ocean Friendly Restaurants program tackles plastic pollution at its source. One restaurant, one customer at a time, it increases awareness, drives behavior change, and ultimately creates scalable impact to reduce our plastic footprint.

Rise Above Plastics

Rise Above Plastics is designed to eliminate the impacts of plastics in the marine environment by raising awareness about the dangers of plastic pollution and by advocating for a reduction of single-use plastics and the recycling of all plastics.
