Join us for ED2012 Clean Up Where You Live, Work, and Play

Monday, April 16th launches the week of a new California Coastal Commission initiative: Earth Day 2012: Clean Up Where You Live, Work, and Play. From April 16‐22, Californians from around the state will organize their own trash cleanups in various locations, helping to remove debris from our communities and shorelines before it has a chance to enter the Pacific Ocean.

This new initiative is different from the Cleanup programs that the Commission organizes throughout the year, which include California Coastal Cleanup Day and the year‐round Adopt‐A‐Beach Program, because these citizen cleanups will largely be self‐organized by concerned people who want to make a difference in the locations where they either live, work, or play.

Celebrate Earth Day at the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium

By Randi Parent

Natalie Burdick for Heal the Bay

I love the way Santa Monicans come out in full force to celebrate Earth Day. It’s great to see so many people eager to get out and clean our beaches. And for all those who clean the beach the weekend of April 21st and 22nd, the reward is free admission to the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium. The weekend-long festivities feature presentations and activities for all ages and an offer of free admission to everyone who first cleans the beach. Participate in Heal the Bay’s monthly Nothin’ But Sand cleanup from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 21st at Santa Monica Beach/Ocean Park location or pick up supplies at a beach cleanup station in front of the Aquarium to clean the beach near the Pier between 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. April 21st or April 22nd. Protect what you love, Santa Monica, and get a (free) hug from a sea urchin at the Aquarium as a reward.
