Thank You Thursday 11.15.12

We are feeling especially grateful this week, as it’s the week before Thanksgiving—the perfect time to say “thank you” to the ocean for all it provides.

Parsons Foundation for pledging support to Heal the Bay’s Santa Monica Pier Aquarium Youth Environmental Education/Field Trip program. For many Los Angeles area students, a field trip to our Aquarium marks their first trip to the ocean! Thanks to this pledge of support, we’ll be able to lead these students in beach exploration games and introduce them to some of the marine life that call our Bay home.

We are grateful for the Parsons Foundation’s commitment to education, the environment and local youth!

Who says cleaning the beach is easy? At this week’s Corporate Healer Beach Cleanup, employees from Macerich battled strong winds to gather the trash along Santa Monica Beach. Thank you for sticking it out to protect what you love!

We’re also grateful for the support of our benefit partners Honu Yoga, Casmaine Boutique and Ted Baker.

Heal the Bay staff wish a bon voyage to Cara Young, our 2012 Coastal Cleanup Day coordinator. Thank you, Cara for all of your hard work, dedication and enthusiasm. We’ll miss hearing you sing at your desk!

Enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday!

Learn all the ways you can help heal the Bay.
