Description

Our Bay is beautiful. We walk it, we ride it, we jog it, we love it…And somehow, by no mistake of our own, the garbage from gutters and trash receptacles from throughout our 154-square-mile watershed, including the cities of Tustin, Santa Ana, Costa Mesa, and Anaheim flows into the San Diego Creek and into the Upper Newport Bay. The bay’s marsh flora captures this tangible pollution and it sits…in our marshes…converting this protected ecological reserve into a wasteland experienced daily by our birds, our fish, our sore eyes…


ENTER YOU! With the proper equipment, YOU can make a difference! YOU can help SAVE the homes of hundreds of species of marine animals and birds that live here year round, by removing some of this trash to create a healthier living environment for our wildlife and gradually restore our bay to its natural beauty.


In partnership with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, Newport Bay Conservancy asks YOU to help us make a dent in the amount of trash that will reach the ocean. GREAT opportunity for service hours!
