Join Heal the Bay's prestigious Speakers Bureau!
For over 25 years, Speakers Bureau has been an integral part of Heal the Bay's mission. Speakers Bureau volunteers spread educational awareness to schools, organizations and businesses about the causes and consequences of ocean pollution. Just last year we were able to reach out to over 40,000 LA County residents!
Are you interested in helping keep oil drilling out of the Santa Monica Bay? The City of Hermosa Beach currently has a moratorium in place that prohibits oil drilling. Hermosa Beach residents will vote later this year on a ballot measure to reconsider this measure and possibly allow slant-drilling into the Bay.
Come paddle one of the most gorgeous stretches of coastline in Southern California with REI and a naturalist from Heal the Bay. On this scenic ocean tour of Palos Verdes you will experience warm sunny coves, craggy headlands, views of Catalina Island and forests of giant kelp teeming with sea life. You will have the chance to see dolphins, seals, pelicans, bright orange garibaldi and several other marine animals. Palos Verdes has been designated as a Marine Protected Area, ensuring the continued health of this important part of our marine ecosystem.
Come be the judge as your favorite local breweries (El Segundo, Monkish, The Dudes, Smog City, Strand, and Abigaile) battle it out in an epic battle of chili-making mastery! There will also be a raffle.
All proceeds from both will be donated to Heal the Bay.
Heal the Bay Partner Artist Erik Abel will be showing a variety of his ocean-inspired original paintings and prints at Nikau Kai Waterman Shop in Manhattan Beach. Please join us to celebrate at the Opening Reception on Friday, June 28, from 6-9pm at Nikau Kai on the corner of 13th & Highland.
