Heal the Bay is hosting our first big holiday festival this year! The Fall Festival at WAYS "Reading and Fitness Park" is a fun-filled event for parents to bring their children, meet neighbors, and learn about the work and service that local community groups provide in their area. This Halloween event will have pumpkins, hay-bales, jack-o-lanterns, and (potentially!) chickens. Activities include pumpkin carving and lots of fun arts and crafts. The empty lot in South L.A. where the Fall Festival is held will eventually be WAYS Park.

Garden in the Sea (Jardin en el Mar), screening as part of DocuWeeks, is a documentary about saving Mexico's Sea of Cortez. Over four years, the director followed Spanish artist Cristina Iglesias to the Sea of Cortez where she was commissioned to create an underwater sculpture that would gradually help enhance marine life. The film not only talks about the role of art but also about the wider environment.
