Tonight was our first night meeting in the town plaza. We’re going to meet there one more time and decide if we will continue meeting there or if we will go back to the balneario.
– Big success at the farmers’ market! We had such a great time talking with the friendly folks at the market, and selling our t-shirts that we’ve decided that we have to do this once a month. Follow us on Facebook to get updates and find out what we’re up to.
– A huge thanks to all who came out to the eco-fair on March 23 at the balneario. The music and food were great and everyone had a fun time.
– The documentary film by Wess Merten about the restoration of the coral reef premieres at the Rincon International Film Festival on April 12 at Rincon of the Seas. Surfrider was a part of this long term project, and it was a great success that we are happy to have been a part of.
– We are planning on having a movie night in May featuring “Restore”. Stay tuned for the more details.
– April 20 is water quality testing day for Puerto Rico. Surfrider is proud to say that we do weekly water testing in and around Rincón and with the help of Rescate Playas Isabela in the north coast. Click to see the latest Blue Water Task Force results.
– Post spring break beach cleanup at Parking Lots beach beginning at 8:30 am on Sat. 4/6.
– June 1st is the date of the lionfish derby in Arecibo, more info coming soon. Lionfish are an invasive, non-native species of fish that are a danger to the local fish and coastal waters. The derby will be a contest to see who can spear the most!
– June 20 is international surfing day. Surfrider is planning a day of fun in the sun, most likely at Sandy beach. Join us!
– This week we will begin delivering donation jars to local businesses who want to Surfrider. These jars will help us collect money throughout slow the summer months.
– We want to further explore the idea of an adopt-a-beach program for the beaches in and around Rincón. This would be a great opportunity for local businesses to show they care about the beaches that the people care about so much.
