Monthly Events: End Summer in Style by Volunteering for Cleaner Water

Summer is coming to an end. Well almost, and if you haven’t had a chance to volunteer to improve our water quality by planting a tree or picking up trash, you still have plenty of time! This month is chock full of fun events and opportunities, so here’s a peek!

>On Tuesday, August 2nd head on over to Echo Park Library for a presentation on the lake’s rehab, hosted by the City of LA.

>If Tuesday is too busy, but Echo Park is a place you want to venture, check out an event hosted by the Echo Park Trash Abatement Project on Saturday, August 7th to pick up trash before it enters the storm drain.

>TreePeople is holding an event on August 11th and 12th at Pasadena’s Eaton Canyon Nature Center for a two-day environmental service learning workshop.

>The City of LA is having a volunteer event out in Wilmington on August 21st, which will be a morning full of satisfying work. On that same Saturday Heal the Bay will be hitting the sands of Pacific Palisades for a sure-to-be-fun beach clean-up.

>Your last chance to volunteer this month comes on August 28th as Friends of Ballona Creek will be in Playa del Rey for a wetlands restoration day. Volunteers are always welcome, so mark your calendars and make a commitment to do your part to better our environment.
