For Our Oceans, Waves and Beaches.

Beach and Bluff Conservancy v. City of Solana Beach Case

On Friday, December 9, 2016, San Diego Superior Court Judge Timothy M. Casserly issued a ruling in the Beach and Bluff Conservancy v. City of Solana Beach Case.

The Surfrider Foundation and its San Diego Chapter sees the ruling to uphold 5 major provisions of the 7 provisions challenged as a huge vindication of the efforts by the City of Solana Beach, California Coastal Commission (CCC) and the Surfrider Foundation to deal with the debilitating impacts of seawalls and development on beach access and recreation.

Surfrider San Diego receives grant from the San Diego Foundation

The San Diego County Chapter was recently awarded $25,000 by the San Diego Foundation to support it’s Carbon Connection Project. This is a vital community project since few local climate action plans comprehensively address the important nexus between water and energy, to both reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prepare for the impacts of climate change to water resources.

Thank you San Diego Foundation for your support in protecting our Ocean, waves and beaches!
