Coos Bay Surfriders are hosting their third annual STAND UP! FOR THE BAY on National Estuaries Day. This is a community paddle event in support of the Coos Bay and other coastal waters. This event is designed to celebrate our amazing estuary and to raise funds for the continued monitoring of Coos Bay waters via the Blue Water Task Force.
Pre-registration cost is $25 for adults and free for children under 12 (kids shirts sold seperately). Event-day registration will be $30. Cost includes the event t-shirt which we will give you the day of the event, food, the paddle joust, and festivities.
