The Waterkeeper is Back!
After spending most of June and July in the shop, our boat, The Waterkeeper, is back on the water and ready for action. MPA Watch Boat Trips and Kelp Restoration Dives are posted and ready for volunteers. Check out our schedule at https://lawaterkeeper.org/events/2014-08/ -Let us know when you can go!
We are also excited to be hosting interns from Patagonia who will be joining our MPA Watch crew on Fridays as we continue to monitor the restricted fishing areas of the Santa Monica Bay. The Patagonia interns are also doing some plastic nurdle collections and facility monitoring throughout LA County on Thursdays. A big thank you to Patagonia for contributing their employees time for use on LA Waterkeeper projects!
Long time volunteer and LA Waterkeeper friend Oren Skoog put this MPA Watch video for us. Check it out and be on the lookout for more videos on our programs. Come join us on or in the water!
