Would you take 10 minutes to fill out this survey to protect your coastal beaches: http://www.surfrider.org/mid-atlantic-recreation
Surfrider is collaborating with several other organizations to map recreational uses of the coast. The information will be submitted to the Ocean Data Portal run by the Mid-Atlantic Regional Council on the Ocean, an arrangement by the Governors of New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia to improve the health of Mid-Atlantic ocean and coastal resources and ensure that they continue to contribute to the economic vitality of coastal communities.
Here’s more information from Surfrider on the survey: http://midatlantic.surfrider.org/?p=95. Please share this information with your friends who also enjoy the coast and its beaches!
