Mission Statement

The Surfrider Foundation is a grassroots, non-profit environmental organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world's oceans, waves, and beaches for all people, through conservation, activism, research, and education. The DC Chapter strives to affect coastal water quality through upstream improvements, achieved through hands-on projects, education programs, and advocacy campaigns. Our long-term guiding goal is to make the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers swimmable.

Description

The Washington, DC Chapter represents nearly 800 residents from the greater Washington, DC, area, including suburban Maryland and Virginia. It naturally draws coastal transplants who have found themselves landlocked, as well as river-, bay-, and snow-oriented natives. Most importantly, we realize that despite physically being hours from the nearest beach, our actions locally can significantly affect the health of the coast, the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers, the Chesapeake Bay, and the rest of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed!
