Join Us As We Honor the Sea

Heal the Bay seeks volunteers for the Oct. 1 opening ceremony of Los Angeles’ World Festival of Sacred Music.

The ceremony begins with a procession at 2:30 p.m. along the boardwalk past Dorothy Green Park (named for Heal the Bay’s founder) to the beach in front of Ocean Park (Tower 26).

Then Native American Elders will continue with songs and dances preparing for a communal offering to the sea. 

Heal the Bay will host an ocean education camp, where we will need volunteers to help with the sifters and kelp for kid-oriented activities.

Volunteers are asked to wear white or aqua clothing. Please contact Saira Gandhi for more information or to sign up to help with this event.

The following groups are scheduled to perform:

  • Agape International Choir 
  • Halau Keali’i O Nalani with Halau O Lilinoe 
  • Kinnara Taiko 
  • La Canada High School Marching Band
  • Sacred Rhythm Drum Ensemble 
  • Swing Brazil Tribe with Viver Brasil
  • Ti’at Society
