What’s New In Our Big Blue?

Un-Paving Paradise for a Cleaner Ocean

We’re excited about a new water-quality funding measure on the November 2018 ballot in L.A. County. Encourage your social circles to VOTE YES on Safe, Clean Water this fall.

Our Impact

Beach cleanups are just the beginning. Heal the Bay staff work to mobilize L.A.’s many diverse communities to protect our coastline, revitalize our urban waterways, and speak out for smart water policy.
