Don’t Be A Bummer

We just released our annual Beach Report Card study. See this year’s notorious list of Beach Bummers and access water quality reports for hundreds of California beaches. Check out our Beach Report Card with NowCast for the latest grades.

Cleanup on Venice Beach

Our big beach cleanup this weekend may be sold out, but you can still show up with your own supplies (buckets and gloves) and earn those extra karma points for doing good. Plus, there’s a special perk for Heal the Bay members!

Our Impact

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