Ballona Creek Cleanup!

Location: Marina Del Rey, Los Angeles CA, 90230

Date: 6/9/2018 Spots Remaining: 25

Description

The BCR Team and CivicSpark Fellows welcomes volunteers of all ages for this fun and worthwhile activity where the inland water and incoming tide meet---a special place of water, fish, birds, and plants---yet still too much concrete and mostly-plastic ocean-bound trash! It’s also a great way for students to earn community service credits!

With the BCR-initiated Culver City ban on single-use polystyrene food and beverage containers now in place, we hope to see a little less polystyrene in future
cleanups. 
BCR encourages people to share the Culver City website information with restaurants that don’t comply:

As always, participants under 18 need waiver forms signed by their parent or guardian, available either on-site or at http://ballonacreek.org/wp-

.

Adult volunteers sign waivers on-site.

Details: With a sunny Spring day expected, we recommend sunscreen, hats, and close-toed shoes (preferably water-resistant). Feel free to bring your own water in a
reusable container and gloves. Water and gloves also will be available at the event, along with bags, grabbers, buckets, rakes, and educational displays. For more, go to http://ballonacreek.org/all-project-list/project-1/

Notes: Upon arrival, please note on the sign-in sheet your partnership with LA Works to accurately confirm your hours. If you fail to sign-in, your hours will not be counted.
