David Stemper Memorial Cleanup 2015

Come join us for an Anacostia River cleanup in honor of Surfrider volunteer David Stemper at Bladensburg Waterfront Park this Saturday,July 18, 9:30am. Canoes will be provided for all volunteers. Supplies and refreshments will also be provided.

Be sure to dress appropriately for the weather and the strong likelihood of getting wet and muddy. Wear sunblock and a hat, bring a water bottle, etc.

This boathouse is located just north of the city, and is always an area in great need. Map on Facebook and Meetup.

Previous cleanups have unearthed hundreds of plastic bottles, chip bags, sport balls, shopping carts, car bumpers, and tires.

Congressman Hudson (R-NC) wants to require the Department of Interior to include the Atlantic in its list of drilling locations, even if the DOI wishes to remove it from the list. (House Amendment 623 to HR 2822)

TODAY: write to your representative and ask them to oppose Hudson’s pro-drilling amendment (House Amendment 623 (code:A093)).

Volunteer from your desk: find phone numbers

Help fight the Rehoboth ocean outfall pipe from your computer or phone

The city of Rehoboth Beach, Delaware has a vote this Saturday to borrow the money to build an ocean outfall pipe to pump treated sewage water into the ocean. Here’s what you can do to help fight this project:

(1) Identify phone numbers for property owners in the city based the owner’s name and address. We’ll send you names and addresses; you only need to use whitepages.com to find their phone number.

(2) Call property owners to tell them about the vote this Saturday to decide if the city will borrow the money to build the pipe.

Can you offer 10 minutes to help find phone numbers or call property owners? Email chair@dc.surfrider.org.
