Dear {Friend},

SCA’s beach clean-up at the US Open of Surfing was a huge success! You can read all about it – and the winning performance turned in by our spokeswoman, pro-surfer Lakey Peterson, in this issue.

And just in case you’re wondering who won our Lakey Room & Board Contest, we’re announcing it here!

We also have new Follow Me bloggers posting from-the-field photos and updates this month, showcasing SCA’s many marine and aquatic internships for surf fans and others.

Follow Liz Guinessey on Fire Island, Elizabeth Ruiz at the Great Dismal Swamp and Back Bay, and others at New York’s Bight Coastal Program and Denali National Park at followme.thesca.org. Get inspired to get out in nature.
