Jim Moriarty, Surfrider CEO, visited the Florida chapters to get a pulse on our local issues. He started with our chapter and was greeted by spring break trash on the beach. Check the VIDEO BLOG POST HERE .
The BAG MONSTER joined the beach visit – its first reported sighting in Miami !
Moriarty also broke bread with the Miami Chapter volunteer executive committee over some local Haitian food, learned about our leaky sewer pipes, the proposed Army Corps breakwater project and toured our nicely progressing dune restoration project up in North Beach.
