Coastal Cleanup DayJoin Amoeba and the Santa Monica Baykeeper for Coastal Clean-Up Day at Dockweiler Beach on Saturday, September 17 from 9:00am to noon.

Coastal Cleanup Day is the largest volunteer day on the planet! Thousands of volunteers around the world will come together to help pick up trash along our coasts.

California's coast and waterways have historically been collecting spots for annual accumulations of trash and debris. This debris, if not removed, can be harmful and even fatal to all manners of marine wildlife, can damage the state's economy, and can even become a human health hazard. Coastal Cleanup Day is a great way for families, students, service groups, and neighbors to join together, take care of our fragile marine environment, show community support for our shared natural resources, learn about the impacts of marine debris and how we can prevent them, and to have fun!

To sign-up to volunteer in the clean-up, visit http://ccd2011.eventbrite.com, email jbadger@smbaykeeper.org, or call 310.305.9645, ext. 105.

Around the world, the mere mention of the word "Westside" prompts people to throw up a "W" hand sign, in imitation of many west coast and west coast-affiliated (Tupac was, after all, a native of East Harlem) pop-rappers of the 1990s (to his credit, Snoop Dogg has always repped his Eastside, as does Compton Eastsider The Game). Within LA, the Westside refers to a wealthy, largely white region of the county (or alternately to South LA's Westside to much of LA's black population). It is bordered by the Santa Monica Mountains region to the northwest, the Pacific Ocean to the West, the South Bay to the south, the aforementioned South LA westside to the southeast, and Midtown and Hollywood to the east.
