Thank You Thursday 3-20-14

The folks at apparel company Horny Toad have supported Heal the Bay in many ways over the years, and we’re thrilled to be featured on their website in celebration of World Water Day, coming up March 22nd. They love us for our dedication to improving the health of the ocean – and we love them for their sustainably produced and stylish threads!

A big thank you to Amgen for its donation of equipment and supplies to our Santa Monica Pier Aquarium and water chemistry laboratory. Heal the Bay staff members were invited to visit the Amgen warehouse and pick out useful items…and we came away with a truckload! These much-needed items will be used to analyze water quality in our lab, grow food for Aquarium animals, and create interpretive materials for the Aquarium’s educational program “Who Pollutes?”

Our awesome new crew of Speakers Bureau volunteers enjoyed a delicious dinner – delivered in eco-friendly reusable bags – at their final training session, thanks to Rubio’s. And last but not least, thanks to the City of Santa Monica’s Office of Sustainability and Environment for for providing these volunteers with parking passes.
