This month, Leandra Lopez, Scientific Aid for the MPA Outreach Coordinator for California Dept of Fish and Wildlife, will have a presentation about Marine Protected Areas titled: “Four Marine Protected Areas that are making waves across a Network.”

California is home to a number of coastal treasures, including a network of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). Join us for a presentation that explores four places from across the state with California’s most iconic Marine Protected Areas: Pyramid Point, Farallon Islands, Point Lobos, and La Jolla. The presentation will dive into the evolving stories of these special places and why we protect them.

Live from the Moon (2013)
Prime-cut Ireland slabs and juicy Japanese sandbars marinated in otherworldly motion graphics and wild medleys, stuffed with Zeke Lau, Alex Gray, Anthony Walsh, Cheyne Magnusson and a healthy dash of JOB: Live From The Moon is a buffet of barrels, and today’s special is the full course.

Surfrider Gathering – South Beach User Conflict

Surfrider is calling a special meeting to address the conflict revolving around TRICK Jet Ski usage (NOT tow) at South Beach in Crescent City, CA. Please attend the meeting as we will discuss the issue and start to formulate a plan to help ensure South Beach is safe and enjoyable for all!

The purpose of this meeting is to have an informative discussion. The ultimate goal is to maximize all public recreational uses of South Beach. ar121875642516001

When: Thursday August 11th, 7pm -9pm
Where: The Neighborhood, 1925 Alliance Rd, Arcata, California 95521
Who: Everyone! Members and non-members welcome

Many of us have learned to surf, taught our kids to surf, or just spent a day enjoying the sand and scenery at beautiful South Beach. Recently, the Crescent City Surfrider chapter and beach users in the area have reached out to us for help. Some recreational Jet Ski riders have been reported to be exceeding their legal allowed activity at South Beach. There have been many complaints that surfers, swimmers, and beachgoers now feel unsafe and unwelcome. Our goal is to help find a solution that keeps this portion of coastline safe and accessible for all types of public use.
If you care about South Beach and want to help, or have ideas and input about this issue, please come and participate in our Surfrider Gathering. Everyone is welcome to attend!

Refreshments will be provided. Bring a treat to share if you like! Members and non-members welcome.

Special thanks to the Neighborhood for hosting!
