YARRRR! DO YE HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A BEACH CAPTAIN?
This summer, we're excited to launch our 1st Beach Captain Training!
BCs ensure our monthly Nothin' But Sand cleanups run smoothly, from set up to load-out. BCs help our cleanup volunteers with registration, handing out supplies and filling out community service forms–as well as being friendly, helpful Heal the Bay ambassadors. We have anywhere from 200 to 2,000+ participants at our monthly cleanups, so it's truly amazing to be part of the team that makes these events possible!
Join the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium on Sunday, May 15 at 3:00pm in our Green Room for a fascinating presentation on great white sharks! Our very own Sarah Munro-Kennedy will share her amazing experiences of working with white sharks off the coast of Africa. Learn all about these misunderstood creatures and why they are important to our ocean ecosystem. This presentation is included with Aquarium admission.
Alison Rose Jefferson, PhD, will lead a presentation on Tuesday, April 26, about Bruce's Beach, an early twentieth century African American resort in Manhattan Beach. In addition to the history of the site and its agents, she will discuss misinformation passed down in the last hundred years as well as recent findings of the contentious relationship between the Bruces and the city founders.
