Coordinated by Heal the Bay for the 30th consecutive year, Coastal Cleanup Day returns Saturday, September 21 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Heal the Bay is an environmental non- profit committed to making coastal waters and watersheds throughout Los Angeles healthy and clean.

This massive volunteering effort has an astounding impact on many of our local natural habitats and communities. Heal the Bay proudly coordinates cleanup locations in Los Angeles County in association with Ocean Conservancy and California Coastal Commission.”

During last year’s Coastal Cleanup Day, over 13,000 volunteers participated in removing 59,600 pounds of trash and debris throughout Los Angeles County. Statewide, over 66,000 volunteers worked together to clear 839,629 pounds of trash, and over 20 million pounds of trash and debris were collected worldwide through the efforts of 789,138 volunteers.

      Hey Timm:
      We were at a fun event last night at the Patagonia store in Santa Monica. Heal the Bay was there. It was on the Magnuson-Stevenson Fishery Conservation and Management Act. A very important piece of bi-partisan legislation from 1976 that protects our coastlines from over fishing and supports habitat renewal. It was great to see lots of friends and younger people out there fighting the fight…
      Cheers
      -Al
