How Safe Is Your Spot?

Earlier this year, we launched the River Report Card, a handy tool to know the water quality at popular freshwater spots across greater L.A. Now we’re releasing our summer 2017 beach report card.

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.
