Now is the time for stronger protections, not weaker ones.
When it rains in L.A. County, millions of gallons of water flow over paved surfaces like rooftops, sidewalks, parking lots, and streets. This "urban runoff" picks up animal waste, metals, oil, toxic materials, bacteria, and pathogens, carrying them to our storm drain system to be dumped into our local rivers and beaches, usually with little or no treatment.
UPDATE: The April 14 Malibu Creek State Park Restoration is cancelled due to rain
Due to concerns about volunteer safety and possible habitat damage during wet weather, we have decided to cancel the restoration event. These events occur the second Saturday of every month, so please feel free to sign up to volunteer for a future restoration event.
