- Hold On To Your Butt (HOTYB): HOTYB is a national campaign that many Surfrider chapters have undertaken to reduce cigarette litter on their beaches, and now we hope to make a difference locally. We keep noticing the absurd amounts of cigarette butts we pick up on our beach cleans around Seattle, so we’re trying to do something about it! Come to a chapter meeting or reach out to the committee to get involved; we need people of all skills to help us do effective outreach, fundraising, and planning; contact is firstname.lastname@example.org
- Oil Transportation and Safety Now, HB 1449, is on the table and set for a hearing. Find out more about this important legislation that will help us protect our amazing waterways. To get involved with the campaign and lend your voice to the cause contact Volunteer Field Coordinator Brice Boland.
- Marine Spatial Planning (MSP): Our volunteers helped secure 3.7 million for MSP, some of which is supported our Recreational-Use Survey this past summer. (See our statewide page washington.surfrider.org for more details) This legislative session there is proposed funding to support existing projects and continue the operations of the Washington Coastal Marine Advisory Council. For more information or to get involved head to the Washington Surfrider page or contact WA Policy Manager Gus Gates.
