Nothin’ But Sand Cleanup at Venice Beach Cancelled. But, You Can Still Volunteer!

We believe it is healthy to be outside volunteering, just not together in large groups at this time. In order to accommodate social distancing we would like to decentralize our Nothin’ But Sand beach cleanup at Venice Beach on March 21, 2020. Instead of having hundreds of folks volunteering together this month, we are cancelling the event and offering the following options:

Small groups (under 25 people), family and individuals can clean any beach at any time, please just follow these instructions:  

  1. Watch this safety video  or read our safety talk
  2. Grab an old bucket and some gardening gloves and hit the beach.
  3. Track the trash you collect with either the Marine Debris Tracker App or our Data Card (download, print and bring the Data Card with you to your cleanup).
  4. Email Emely Garcia, Beach Programs Manager at egarcia@healthebay.org with a picture of the Data Card filled out. Don’t forget to post your personal Nothin’ But Sand cleanup pics using hashtag #healthebay. *See below for instructions to get your community service/volunteer hours.

If you are the leader of a big group (over 25 people), please contact Emely at egarcia@healthebay.org.

We do Nothin’ But Sand beach cleanups every month, so don’t worry about skipping this one. Sign up for our summer dates.

We apologize for any inconvenience this event cancellation causes. We are taking this action out of an abundance of caution. Please protect yourself and stay informed with the following resources:

*To qualify for community service hours, please share a photo of yourself or your group before/after your cleanup on social media using the hashtag #healthebay AND email the social media post link to Emely at egarcia@healthebay.org with the location name (beach name and city/state) and the date and time. We will then send you a community service form to complete. If you do not follow these steps exactly you will not qualify for community service hours.

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.
