Have You Made Your Year-End Gift Yet?

Through the end of December, we will share the inspiring stories of some amazing people whose lives have been changed by Heal the Bay. Now they are changing our region for the better. Please make your Year-End Gift today to support the work of these dedicated water warriors.

A November to Remember

Our final Nothin’ But Sand monthly cleanup this year is Nov. 18 at Hermosa Beach. Venture out with us for a birdwatching + mini creek cleanup at the Ballona Wetlands in Playa del Rey. Our next MPA Watch training starts Nov. 28 — learn how to become the ultimate citizen scientist for local Marine Protected Areas.

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.
