Volunteer through Heal the Bay’s Adopt-A-Beach program and take the iniative to lead your own cleanups. Commit to three cleanups in one year at your chosen outdoor place (a neighborhood, beach, park, creek, or trail) anywhere in Greater Los Angeles. Use the Marine Debris Tracker app to track the trash you remove and help change environmental policies locally and globally.
Heal the Bay’s Adopt-a-Beach Program gives individuals and groups the opportunity to learn about and participate in the conservation of our outdoor places. All participants will receive a virtual safety talk from Heal the Bay’s Speakers Bureau, educational resources, and fun games, as well as an official Certificate of Completion from Heal the Bay and California Coastal Commission. Please note that the Adopt-A-Beach program includes self-directed cleanups supported by Heal the Bay but will not be staffed by Heal the Bay personnel. Please contact Stephanie Gebhardtrat for more information on the Adopt-A-Beach program.
CONTRIBUTE TO COMMUNITY SCIENCE
Data collection is critical to our clean water mission at Heal the Bay. We actively use data from Los Angeles County cleanups to educate, support local legislation, and advocate for the health of our waterways. Adopt-a-Beach participants are asked to track trash finds through a mobile application, but physical data cards are available by request.
