For an ocean lover, being land-locked in Charlotte can be tough. Fortunately, this local organization has got you covered. Surfrider Foundation – Charlotte Chapter  brings the ocean to you through education, awareness, and local volunteer opportunities.

As an ambassador for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Parks and Recreation, Surfrider hosts monthly cleanups at nature preserves that border our local lakes and waterways. Each month, volunteers collect over 100 pounds of garbage that otherwise would have ended up in the ocean.
