Have You Made Your Year-End Gift?

Through the end of December, we will share the inspiring stories of 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 to support these water warriors.

Behind the Scenes: L.A. River Monitoring

Nelson Chabarria always imagined being a chemist. Then life got in the way. He shares how Heal the Bay’s L.A. River water quality monitoring program changed his perspective and pushed him further into his dream career.

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.
