Make A Donation

We are living in a critical decade for our planet. The hard work in front of us fighting for safe, healthy, and clean water—and taking action on the shocking DDT issue—won’t happen by itself. Your donation to Heal the Bay supports our mission of protecting the coastal waters and watersheds in Greater Los Angeles through science, education, community action, and advocacy.

Water Quality, Equity & Climate Resilience

It’s not surprising local water quality monitoring was impacted by the pandemic, extreme heat, and unprecedented wildfires this year. See a recap of our unique experience sampling LA’s popular freshwater spots this summer. The big takeaway? 2020 stresses the growing need for climate-ready policies as well as safe and equitable access to the environment.

Our Impact

Beach and neighborhood cleanups are just the beginning. Heal the Bay staff work to mobilize LA’s diverse communities to protect our coastline, restore our waterways, and speak out for clean water policy.
