Earth Month Nothin’ But Sand Beach Cleanup
April 20 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
This is a SOLD OUT event. (What this means? We’ve run out of supplies, so you need to bring your own gloves and buckets to participate in the cleanup).
Happy Earth Month! Let’s celebrate the beautiful place we call home by giving back together. Beach cleanups are a great experience for you and your family, friends and co-workers to get involved in the community and environment. All you need to do is show up… and bring reusable supplies, if possible! We provide the supplies, all you need to do is register, sign a waiver, and show up.
3 Special Perks for Volunteers
1. Golden Road Brewing, makers of the Heal the Bay IPA, is hosting our second annual Heal the Bay Pop Up on Saturday, April 20 at The Rose Room in Venice – stop by after the cleanup to see exhibiting local artists. 40% of all exhibited work sold will be donated to Heal the Bay. We will also raffle off something special from Golden Road at this cleanup.
2. Heal the Bay Aquarium under the Santa Monica Pier is FREE on Saturday, April 20 for Heal the Bay cleanup participants. The Aquarium will be open from 11:00am-5:00pm so cleanup volunteers can walk over after the cleanup before heading home.
3. Our friends at Coastal Co. will join us at the cleanup and we will be raffling off two So-Cal beach lifestyle inspired subscription boxes for volunteers.

Wanna roll up your sleeves and become a Heal the Bay Volunteer? We have five distinct volunteer programs that we offer. Each program has a specific training associated with it, as well as its own volunteer roles. Aquarium – Aquarium volunteers work at our Santa Monica Pier Aquarium. They support various public programs from interpreting at touch tanks to ensuring the success of private events. They also attend outreach events and represent Heal the Bay all over Los Angeles. Beach – Beach Captain volunteers support our large Nothin’ But Sand beach cleanups that occur every third Saturday of the month. They are also involved in other beach programs like Suits on the Sand, and have the opportunity to attend Coastal Cleanup Day Site Captain training. Outreach – These volunteers take Heal the Bay knowledge all over Los Angeles. Speakers Bureau volunteers present in classrooms, in business meetings, at beach cleanups, festivals and more. Community Science – MPA Watch Volunteers survey marine protected areas (MPAs) in Malibu and Palos Verdes. They monitor, collect data, and get to walk along some of California’s most stunning beaches. Youth – Middle and high school students register their school club with Club Heal the Bay to be part of a larger environmental advocacy community. In return, clubs receive recognition and rewards for their civic action projects. To get started as a Heal the Bay volunteer, attend a Volunteer Orientation.
