Founded on the principle that one person can make a difference, Heal the Bay has empowered over 100,000+ volunteers to improve our environment and communities. Our volunteers are an integral part in fulfilling Heal the Bay’s mission – they advocate for safe, healthy and clean water in Los Angeles through education, interpretation, science and more.
Volunteer Orientation occurs every second Monday of the month. Attend one to learn more about Heal the Bay, our various volunteer programs, and current water issues in Los Angeles.

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 Heal the Bay Aquarium under the Santa Monica Pier. 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 cleanup volunteers support our Adopt-A-Beach and Coastal Cleanup Day programs. Our Beach Captain volunteers support Nothin’ But Sand public beach cleanups and Suits on the Sand private cleanups, 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 both virtually and in-person in classrooms, 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.
