Surf, sun and a clean beach

ENCINITAS — Solana Center for Environmental Innovation will partner with the Rob Machado Foundation’s Green Team and needs volunteers to work the 10th annual Switchfoot BroAm Surf Competition and Concert set for July 12 at Moonlight Beach.

Organizers are putting together a team of volunteers to lend a helping hand to keep Moonlight Beach clean on the day of the event. Volunteer times run in four-hour windows beginning at 6 a.m. on the day of the event and ending at 7 p.m. There will be a training event a couple days before the event with Rob himself. Volunteers will assist event goers in making sure that trash hits the appropriate can and that anything recyclable will be diverted from the landfill. Volunteers will have the opportunity to meet Rob Machado, be part of this waste diversion event, all at a beautiful local beach, watching the surf contest and rocking out to a live performance by Switchfoot.

The offer is open to anyone interested in environmental conservation, surfing and making a difference in the community. Volunteers will receive a RMF Green Team T-shirt and swag the day of the event.
