Westside residents have a chance to make a difference, by joining with the Councilmember’s officer, L.A. County Supervisor Lindsey Horvath and Heal the Bay in Coastal Cleanup Day on Saturday, September 23.
Residents can work on Will Rogers State Beach, at Tower 7, off Temescal Canyon Road, between 9 a.m. and noon. The site captains are Supriyaa Singh and Kevin Lui. LA County-operated sites will have free parking. Visit this link to download and print a parking pass click here.
