We are a group of ordinary people—professionals, homemakers, students, and retirees—joined by a common concern for our environment. Participating in restoration work in Upper Newport Bay provides volunteers with the opportunity for respite and renewal, away from the stresses of southern California’s highly urbanized environment. The work has a way of turning itself inward. We restore ourselves, our sense of purpose, by restoring the place around us.
Our community-based restoration program is part of the Marine Education Project, a project of the Tides Center conducted in partnership with the California Coastal Commission.
