Super Saturday to Honor Earth: 2,000-Plus Expected to Clean Our Beaches; Compete in Sandcastles; and Explore the Aquarium

This Saturday, April 15, local environmental group Heal the Bay is hosting a day full of eco- and family-friendly activities on the shoreline, including a designer sandcastle competition, massive beach cleanup and free admission to Heal the Bay’s Santa Monica Pier Aquarium for those who volunteer. A record amount of cleanup volunteers are expected.

“Participants will take advantage of predicted sunny and mild weather to help remove debris along Santa Monica beach,” organizers explained. “Before they hit the sand, they can tune in with a group meditation session, led as part of Disclosure Fest’s Mass Meditation Initiative. Afterward, they can see all the animals they helped protect by touring Heal the Bay’s nearby aquarium.”

Southern California’s environment and $10 billion coastal economy is threatened by harmful and unsightly trash, Heal the Bay explained. Nearly 80 percent of debris on the beach comes from inland sources and is carried to the shore via the stormdrain system.

Meditation begins at 8 a.m. north of the Pier on the sand; Beach Clean Up starts at 10 a.m. Near Lifeguard Tower 1550, Sandcastles are from 8.30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m at Lifeguard Tower 1550, and free Aquarium visits for Clean Up participants run from 12.30 p.m. – 5 p.m.
