Humboldt Surfrider, January 2012

To all of our members, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!  December brought fantastic turnouts for our beach clean-up and Ocean Night. Also, thank you to all the volunteers who helped make Surfrider’s “Day Without a Bag” successful. Humboldt Surfrider is starting the New Year with the same momentum we ended with!  This year Surfrider will be building more support from the community for our “Ban the Bag” campaign.  To jumpstart these efforts we have created an online petition to generate signatures.  Check it out here. Help us spread the word  by sharing with your friends and family or on Facebook.  We look forward to seeing you in the new year!

Baykeeper Arts Alive
6PM Saturday, Jan. 7 at Humboldt Baykeeper
Arts Alive at Humboldt Baykeeper (217 E Street, Old Town, Next to Ramone’s) will feature nautical-inspired copper sculptures from Scott Hemphill and the musical stylings of Kenny Ray and the Mighty Rovers.  Stop by to sign a petition supporting a ban on single-use plastic bags in Humboldt County and learn more about how to reduce the plastic trash flow to our coastal environment.  Refreshments will be served.

Humboldt Waste Management Meeting

The Humboldt Waste Management Authority (HWMA) should be introducing the ordinance that will ban single-use plastic bags at their next meeting.  This will be a great opportunity to remind the HWMA that we want to see the bag ban passed and to show our support.  Surfrider encourages you to attend or to let your representatives know your opinion.
