Join Heal the Bay and Wisdom Academy for Young Scientists (WAYS) for a neighborhood cleanup around the future home of WAYS Reading and Fitness Park. Heal the Bay is building a multi-use park that will serve as an outdoor classroom, community green space, fitness area and water quality improvement project.
Held the third Thursday in December, Heal the Bay’s annual A Day Without a Bag gives Southland shoppers an early holiday present, courtesy of a reusable bag giveaway at locations throughout Los Angeles County.
Each year, people around the world come together on the third Saturday in September to clean local beaches, parks, schools, river banks and neighborhoods. It’s the largest volunteer day on the planet, and we hope you’ll be there for the next Coastal Cleanup Day on Saturday, Sept.15, 2012, 9 a.m. until noon.
DudaArt presents the "Blue Aquarium" series debut at Le Cellier. A percentage of the proceeds will benefit Heal the Bay. Artist Mary T. Duda will be there to sign her work. "Saxophonist Extraordinaire" Don Bell and and "Songbird" Summer Rona will perform and special French-Vietnamese appetit/wine pairings will be served. There will also be a raffle drawing and prize giveaways.
Two celebrated writers deeply influenced by the riparian and other landscapes of the American West will read from their work and explore how storytelling – in the tradition of Thoreau and Emerson – can give voice to natural resources.
