Event description

Description

Do you like science AND long walks on the beach? Then join Heal the Bay's citizen-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.

Note: Attendance to both sessions is required to become an MPA Watch certified volunteer.

Parking: Metered street parking is available. Parking is also available at the garage next to the main office building.
