Protect Ocean Recreation Workshops in Montauk July 23
Surfrider Foundation is gathering surfers, divers, kayakers, kitesurfers, wildlife viewers, beach goers and other “non-consumptive” recreational users in New York to discuss ways to increase protection for the ocean and beach activities that we love.
Please join us on July 23 from 6:30-8:30PM at the Offices of Concerned Citizens of Montauk. (6 S. Elmwood Ave. Montauk 11954) Food provided! Event page here: https://www.facebook.
Our coastal and ocean pastimes are threatened by rising sea levels, ocean pollution, and offshore oil and gas exploration. Surfrider will lead workshop participants in a discussion about where data shows non-consumptive recreation taking place in New York and opportunities to increase protection of these activities.
Participants will then have the opportunity to voice their thoughts and experiences and recommend which areas of New York need the most protection for their particular recreational activity.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join us, and let me know if you have any questions. Also, feel free to forward to other surfers, divers, kayakers, etc. that you know–hope to see you there!
