Event description

Description

Pick Up For Paradise is a partnership between From the Heart Tribe and Heal The Bay to help restore the natural habitat of our beaches and ocean by picking up foreign objects. From the Heart Tribe has made a commitment to organize several events in 2018 in order to adopt the Santa Monica Beach through the California Coastal Commission.

Pollution in our wondrous oceans is a serious problem with consequences for both humankind and marine life. Trash is accumulating in California’s streams, rivers and dumping into the ocean at such an alarming rate it is impacting wildlife, aquatic life, public health and life itself! During our efforts to Pick Up For Paradise we will be collecting and recording data (plastic and foreign debris) to help advance environmental legislation.

Event Details:

  • Please wear layers and sun protection, like reef-safe organic sunscreen.
  • Wear closed-toe shoes to make sure you don’t step on anything sharp
  • Drinking water (preferred reusable bottle - if you brought a single-use plastic bottle, you may be forced to do 15 pushups)
  • Hand sanitizer (fresh cotton gloves are provided)

Parking:

Please park at the Nordstrom’s parking structure at 1320 4th, Santa Monica. They have 2 hours free and you can walk down to the pier. (Or $8-$12 Appian Way will lead you to the parking lot North side of the Pier.)

Our heroine, Dr. Sylvia Earle, says in the documentary Mission Blue: "We have not just an opportunity, we have the responsibility to get it right."


Thank you again for your commitment, your hard work and your love for the ocean as a From The Heart Tribe volunteer!
