Aquarium to host beach clean-up, garden workday

Cabrillo Marine Aquarium invites the public to participate in its monthly Beach Clean-Up and Native Garden Workdays on the first Saturday of each month. Volunteers learn about shoreline habitats and the coastal sage scrub native plant community, while discovering the benefits of protecting these environments. The collective effort of volunteers who spend two hours removing beach debris and garden weeding can make a real difference along our heavily impacted shoreline.
The next beach clean-up and native garden workday will take place Saturday, April 4, from 8am to 10am. Reservations for this volunteer activity are required. Call (310) 548-7562 for reservations and information. The Aquarium welcomes volunteers of all ages and abilities; parking tickets will be validated.
Following a morning of conservation efforts, visitors can extend their experience by visiting the Aquarium’s Exploration Center, Aquatic Nursery, Virginia Reid Moore Marine Research Library and the Susanne Lawrenz-Miller Exhibit Hall. The Aquarium displays local marine life of Southern California and will be open to the public from 10am to 5pm.
Cabrillo Marine Aquarium is a facility of the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks and is located at 3720 Stephen M. White Drive in San Pedro.
For more information, group reservations, or to receive a calendar of events, call (310) 548-7562 or visit www.cabrilloaq.org.
