Volunteer

Surfrider is grassroots, meaning we run on volunteer efforts in our local communities to create positive and lasting change. We can always use your help! There are a number of ways you can volunteer, and we are happy to work with you to find opportunities that align with your interests. Email us at opcsurfrider@gmail.com if you’re interested in volunteering, have a unique skillset you’d like to offer help with, or just a great idea! 

Come to our meetings

We have monthly Chapter meetings on the first Wednesday of every month at 6:30 pm. In normal times, we meet at Smuggler’s Landing in Port Angeles, but right now we’re meeting virtually. Sign up for our newsletter and follow us on social media to learn about our virtual meetings. We often have guest speakers on a wide range of topics, so bring a friend and learn something new!
