Hannah Schandelmeier-Lynch was awarded one of the Coos Bay Surfrider Scholarships for 2016.
The Coos Bay Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation is a incredible group of people working hard to protect their local estuaries, waterways and beaches! Not only is the Chapter protecting special places like Bastendorff or monitoring local water quality through their Blue Water Task Force program, but they’ve put a heavy emphasis on providing opportunities for the next generation of coastal defenders through their scholarship program and supporting the Bandon High School Surfrider Youth Leadership Club.
Each Independence Day hundreds of revelers flock to Bastendorff beach to party. Most are well meaning and clean up their own trash. Some don’t realize their scrap wood fires leave behind nails that can cause injury to subsequent beach goers. Others might not care. The result is a beach strewn with beer cans, firework’s casings, and nails. Most of this would end up in the ocean without intervention. We need YOU to help us clean up the mess before this happens!
