Docents & the MPA Collaborative
Los Angeles Waterkeeper is a founding member of the CA Statewide Marine Protected Area Collaborative Implementation Project and is dedicated to continuing the Collaborative’s efforts to provide local communities with the information, structure, support, and inter-agency communication to facilitate the creation of working Marine Protected Area (MPA) collaborative groups. Each local group is uniquely suited to spread the word about their MPAs and their community activities and needs.
We are reaching out to LA Waterkeeper volunteers to involve more stakeholders in our MPA Collaborative activities in and around our Marine Protected Areas. MPA docent trainings for volunteer collaborative representatives from various ocean communities are being formed. Volunteer docents can then lead MPA outreach and education activities in their communities. The Point Dume and Point Vicente/Abalone Cove MPAs are incredibly beautiful areas. Spending time spreading the word about our restricted fishing areas is a great way to volunteer, and a great way to spend a day at the beach.
Contact LA Waterkeeper Community Programs Manager, Michael Quill, at email@example.com for more information, and to join us as an area representative and or docent in this collaborative action!
