Thanks for Making Huntington Beach Sparkle

Celebrate the ocean

For Kids Ocean Day, 1,300 kids and 200 teachers and volunteers spent the morning cleaning up Huntington Beach, preventing over 500 pounds of trash from washing away into our waters. For ocean lovers like us, it was the best day ever.

Thank you to everyone that helped make this event a success. When we stand together for clean oceans, we “sea change” in our environment and community. To join our mission, donate to Kids Ocean Day 2017. Your donation keeps our waters trash-free and helps more kids to connect with their local environment.

Why we can’t stop talking about seahorses

Earlier this month, The California Department of Fish and Wildlife discovered a rare seahorse near an eelgrass restoration site in Upper Newport Bay.

The Pacific Seahorse thrives in eelgrass habitats, and that’s exactly what we’ve been working to cultivate in this area. Last summer, we successfully reached our goal of planting over 1,000 square meters of eelgrass in Upper Newport Bay. With our Eelgrass Restoration Project now in its fifth year, we’re now expanding our efforts to restore Newport Bay with more restoration dates. We recently launched our Living Shorelines Project to naturally buffer against sea level rise and we partner with the City of Newport Beach to assist dock owners with eelgrass mitigation.
