On Our Radar: Earth Day 2012

Earth Day Month, Heal the Bay, cleanups

View all Earth Month events and updates

Heal the Bay celebrates each Earth Day in a big way -- by turning it into a whole month. For the entire month of April, we ensure that "Earth Day is every day." Our month is chock-full of great events for all ages -- cleanups, tablings and more. We welcome volunteers to join us in April to get their hands dirty, meet a few new friends in the community and learn all about the Santa Monica Bay at our Aquarium.
