South Sound Surfrider Chapter Mtg with Dr. David Trimbach of Oregon State University

What do Washington and British Columbia residents call and know about the shared body of water that is officially called the Salish Sea? A recent study conducted by the SeaDoc Society and Oregon State University (OSU) reveals that many residents are unfamiliar with the Salish Sea and more needs to be done to improve geographic literacy and familiarity with this integrated transboundary ecosystem.

Please join South Sound Surfrider as it hosts Dr. David Trimbach from the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife at Oregon State University to hear about this recent project and SeaDoc Society’s next steps with this effort. You can read more about the project and its findings here:

Our chapter is also due for our bi-annual elections, and our Chapter Chair and Treasurer positions will be open. Are you a member of Surfrider with free time and want to devote it to protecting the oceans, waves and beaches? Are you passionate about getting involved with local politics, and ensuring your voice is heard? We love all of that, and think you would be a great fit for our Surfrider family. If you are a member and are interested, nominate yourself or someone else for one of these positions. We can add that name to the list of nominees. These are important jobs and duties needed to run an effective Chapter, so please let it be known if you want to get involved. If you would like to find out more information on the commitment involved, please e-mail us at

Come out for an informative and friendly discussion about the place we live and love, and how each of us can help to improve it. We meet on the second Thursday of every month, to share our work and how you can get involved. Each meeting typically will have a guest speaker so stay tuned for topics of interest. We will also have other fun updates including upcoming beach cleanups and events. Our meetings are open to the public. All ages welcome.

Parking at The Social: There is street parking along Dock Street, 22 spots inside the Thea’s Landing Parking Garage, plus additional parking lots along Dock Street. Please note that The Social does not validate parking.
