We will provide gloves and tools to help you with the efforts, while you rise and shine to the occasion. We will be meeting across the street from MAST Academy, look for the Surfrider banner!
Don’t forget to bring your trash collectors (net bags, baskets, etc) and, of course, reusable water bottles for your fill ups!
