Event description

Description

Do you like science AND long walks on the beach? Then join Heal the Bay's community-science based program, MPA Watch! Volunteers will be trained on how to collect data while walking along the most beautiful beaches of Malibu and Palos Verdes.

Monitoring done by MPA Watchers helps encourage enforcement and regulation around marine protected areas (MPAs), also known as "underwater yosemites."

Become a volunteer by attending the two-part training program, which includes one classroom training and one field training session. All training materials will be provided.

Parking: Metered street parking is available.

**PLEASE NOTE: Attendance to both sessions is required to become an MPA Watch certified volunteer, as well as previous attendence at an initial Heal the Bay Volunteer Orientation. The orientation happens every second Monday of the month. The information and RSVP for the June 10th Volunteer Orientation can be found here.
