Heal the Bay beach cleanup
For all you environmentally-conscious residents out there, Heal the Bay will be hosting a weekend full of beach cleanups and family-friendly activities, all in honor of Earth Weekend.
Thousands of eco-friendly Californians are expected to come out and take advantage of the gorgeous weather, while removing debris from the Santa Monica beach.
Volunteers will learn how vital it is to California’s environment and economy to keep trash out of our oceans.
Following the beach cleanup will be a BlueGreen Earth Day party on the Santa Monica Pier. The party will feature a green market, sustainable goods expo, and an eco beer crawl.
The beer crawl will highlight the sustainably produced specialty Heal the Bay IPA from Golden Road Brewing in bamboo pint glasses.
Families will also learn easy steps they can take in their day-to-day lives to be more Earth-friendly throughout the year.
Volunteers will receive free admission to the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium all weekend.
The clean up will take place Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, visit www.healthebay.org.
