Nothin’ But Sand Beach Cleanup

October 21, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join “Pura Playa” – Heal the Bay’s October Nothin’ But Sand Beach Cleanup celebrating the history of environmentalism in Los Angeles’ Latinx communities!

Help keep the beach plastic-free for the fall at Heal the Bay’s Nothin’ But Sand beach cleanup on Saturday, October 21, 2023! RSVP to RESERVE your BUCKET

October Location:

Venice Beach Pier at Washington Ave

5138 Venice Fishing Pier, Marina Del Rey, CA, 90293

Public parking available in Venice at Washington parking lot. We recommend carpooling.

Come celebrate the history of LA and its people with Heal the Bay as our Outreach team takes time to recognize the contributions of local Latinx ocean and water conservation activists. Stop by our Education Table to learn about Latinx Angelenos who have made massive impacts in environmental stewardship, coastal culture, and environmental justice.

We hope to “SEA” you on the sand for an awesome autumn beach cleanup, RAFFLE PRIZES, and more! We’ll provide the supplies and environmental educators (look for our big blue tents near Tower 42). All you need to bring is your reusable water bottle, a light jacket, and some friends!


The Heal the Bay Team is also excited to share that our safety talks will be provided in Spanish as well as English!

¡El equipo de Heal the Bay también se complace en compartir que nuestras charlas de seguridad se proporcionarán en español e inglés!

This October, help keep our coastline safe, clean, and “Pura Playa” for all.
