Offshore Drilling Oil and Recreation Don’t Mix

Join Surfrider San Mateo at REI in San Carlos for a special video and presentation to learn about the threat of offshore oil drilling to our local beaches and coastal waters in California. The presenter is Delia Bense-Kang, Northern California Campaign Coordinator for Surfrider Foundation.

The Trump administration has announced plans to expand offshore oil drilling in all US waters including off the California Coast. These plans include oil exploration using deafening seismic blasts that are capable of injuring or killing marine animals. Come learn about these threats and how we can help prevent this from happening. There will also be the opportunity to learn about what the San Mateo Surfrider Chapter is doing to keep our coastline and local marine sanctuaries healthy and clean, and how to get involved and make a difference!

This event is free. Attendance is limited and registration is required.
