Paddles up! Big thanks to the Santa Monica Pier Paddleboard Race and Ocean Festival for bequeathing Heal the Bay and our Santa Monica Pier Aquarium with a portion of the net proceeds from the event! And don’t worry — it’s not too late to register for the race this Saturday!

And deeply soulful thanks are due to the Main Street Santa Monica Summer SOULstice festival, coming up on June 22. Live music, sidewalk sales, food and incredible shopping discounts all month long are at the heart of this citywide shindig. Best of all, a portion of event revenues will support our work at Heal the Bay! One love.

Last but not least: Where would we be without Rubio’s. Hungry and bagless, that’s where. From catering our events to donating thousands of reusable bags in honor of this Sunday’s World Oceans Day, our favorite fish taqueria is truly deserving of our kudos.
