The Santa Barbara chapter of Surfrider will hold its fourth anniversary “Paddle Out: Turn the Tide on Ocean Pollution” event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at East Beach, on the east side of Stearns Wharf.

People-powered participants of all ages are invited to join the paddle out in solidarity of preserving and protecting the world’s oceans.

This event offers two levels of participation: open registration, which is free, and Surfrider supporter for $25. The Surfrider supporters will receive goody bags, including an event T-shirt and a lunch ticket for Wahoos. Each child accompanied by one Surfrider supporter will receive a goody bag with a children’s shirt.

Registration and a silent auction will begin at 11 a.m., with the Paddle Out starting at 1 p.m. at the base of Stearns Wharf and concluding at 1:30 p.m.
