We are currently experiencing the season’s first major rain event – the First Flush has occurred. We need your help to battle the trash and pollution running off our city streets into the ocean.
Please join the Storm Response Team at the beach between 8 am - 9 am tomorrow, Thursday October 10. Heal the Bay Staff will be at the following locations with cleanup supplies.* Look for the Heal the Bay umbrella.
1. Pico Kenter stormdrain at the end of Pico Blvd. or Bay St. Metered Parking on Bay Street or in Lot 4S off Bicknell.
2. Playa del Rey just south of Ballona Creek at Pacific Ave and 62nd Ave.
This is a rain or shine cleanup. Please wear a rain poncho and boots or closed toed shoes. Volunteers under 18 need to have a waiver signed by a parent or guardian.
*Volunteers are free to remove debris at their local beach or other impacted neighborhood locale.
