Surfrider @ Science World, Summer 2015

We're exciting to be partnering with Science World, Patagonia on West 4th and Vancity Theatre for Vancouver's first World Oceans Week with some cool, creative activities and events!

In the Entrance Gallery: three infographic posters designed by Surfrider Volunteer Yee Tongrungroj, highlighting three of our campaigns: Protect Where You Play, Hold On To Your Butts, and Ban the Bead. The artist will be on-site June 13, starting at 2:30pm.

Outdoor Exhibit Area, Sat June 6 and Sat June 13, 11am - 4pm: a mini beach transect activity/exhibit for kids - highlights how we do research at transects, and what kinds of garbage we find on Vancouver's beaches. Surfrider volunteers on site to interpret this exhibit and talk with visitors. The mini transect might appear as a pop-up exhibit during the week June 6-13 as our volunteers have time. Sign up to volunteer here!

Surfrider-produced videos (from our local and other chapters) playing on monitors in the museum.

Kits Beach Cleanup: Join us on Saturday, June 6 from 11am - 1pm as we clean Kits Beach from the pool to the Burrard St Bridge. We will be having a contest for the most cigarette butts collected and counted with bragging rights and a shout out over our social media. For safety reasons we ask that you preregister on Eventbrite.

World Ocean's Day Volunteer Social: Our friends over at Sunset Grill have a special on for all Surfrider volunteers, members and friends from 1-3pm on Saturday, June 6. Come down and get to know the Surfrider Vancouver team.

Bag It & Endless Summer Double Header: $16 for a documentary and timeless surf film here!
