The San Francisco Chapter's Beach Clean-Up Program is one of the most successful of its kind. As a recipient of the Surfrider Foundation's distinguished "Clean Beach Award," this program has set the standard for other Surfrider chapters around the country, and increasingly, the world.
Our success is due largely to the incredible volunteer participation by chapter members and other environmentally conscience individuals and organizations who make caring for Ocean Beach a priority. Although we have come to expect regular turnouts at our monthly beach clean-ups, VOLUNTEERS are our greatest asset; and we need as much assistance as we can get. Please work with us to make Ocean Beach the best it can be, and attend any of the scheduled beach clean-ups listed below.
We have recently partnered with the National Park Service, The Parks Conservancy, The Ocean Beach Foundation, and Burners without Borders, to improve the quality and scope of beach clean-up services at Ocean Beach, particularly in conjunction with the new NPS Bonfire Policy.
