by Surfrider Foundation
Registration is open for the Blue Vision Summit in Washington DC on May 20-23! Hosted by Blue Frontier Campaign, the Summit brings together ocean activists from around the country to discuss ways to advance ocean and coastal conservation. The conference program includes panels on: offshore drilling; plastic pollution; marine protected areas (MPAs); ocean acidification; federal legislation; ocean recreation; and numerous other topics. The Summit also includes a "lobby day" where attendees will visit the Hill to meet with their representatives. Surfrider Foundation is one of many ocean groups participating in organizing the event, and our DC Chapter will also be hosting a reception on Sunday evening for conference attendees. At the last Summit, Surfrider activists were well-represented and we hope to see another good turnout this spring! Please CLICK HERE to register for the event. Scholarships are available for folks looking to cover registration costs. See you there!
