The Santa Monica Bay Restoration Commission (SMBRC)  is bringing a fun interactive display to the Green Tent this Sunday: a wheel you can spin to learn about various environmental topics - and win a prize! Stop by and bring the kids!

For the past 25 years, the Santa Monica Bay Restoration Commission and its non-profit partner, The Bay Foundation, have worked for the long-term health of the 266-square mile Santa Monica Bay and its 414-square mile watershed through research, ecological monitoring, education, planning, and clean-up efforts.

Over the years, hundreds of interns and volunteers have helped the SMBRC with the Ballona Wetlands Ecological Reserve monitoring, kelp forest restoration off the Palos Verdes Peninsula, Clean Restaurants and Clean Boating programs outreach, native garden installations, and so much more. People from both their LMU and downtown office at the Green Tent to share with you information about these efforts and some of the environmental challenges.
