The Reef Check Foundation and Left Coast Brewery will host an event from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Sept. 14 at the brewery, 1251 Puerta Del Sol, to support the foundation’s efforts. For every pint of beer sold, $1 will be donated to Reef Check. Professional surfer Courtney Conlogue will be in attendance to sign autographs, a raffle will take place and representatives of the foundation will give a short presentation about Reef Check.
Founded in 1996 by Gregor Hodgson, Reef Check Foundation is an international nonprofit organization that works toward the preservation of two ecosystems: California rocky reefs and tropical coral reefs.
The foundation’s headquarters office is located in Los Angeles, and the organization has volunteer teams in more than 90 countries and territories working to create partnerships among community volunteers, businesses, government agencies, universities and other nonprofits. The goals are to establish a global network of volunteer teams trained in Reef Check’s scientific methods that regularly monitor and assess reef health, educate the public about the value of reef ecosystems and the current crisis affecting marine life.
