The 22nd Annual Paddle for Clean Water will be held on September 22nd, 2013 in Ocean Beach, California. Southern Californians will gather in San Diego to paddle around the Ocean Beach Pier in order to help raise awareness about the need for clean water and healthy coastlines. From 9am to noon, participants will be kept busy with free breakfast, guest speakers, live music from Ottly Mercer and a raffle.
As the hosts of the event, Surfrider’s San Diego Chapter is proud to stand behind their commitment of ‘protection and enjoyment of oceans, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network.’ As a part of that, this year’s Paddle for Clean Water will target their Rise Above Plastics campaign, which aims to reduce 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 recycling of all plastics.
An early morning donation-based yoga class will be held on the beach starting at 8:30am and the event after-party will be at Wonderland Restaurant & Bar.
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to help Surfrider Foundation protect our ocean, waves and beaches at the 22nd Annual Paddle for Clean Water!
