SM Beaches Offer Great Opportunity

The Santa Monica Beach Restoration Pilot Project, a partnership of The Bay Foundation and The City of Santa Monica, aims to return a healthy and beautiful ecosystem to an approximately three acre section of beach. The project will evaluate ‘soft’ low-cost natural shore protection from sea-level rise and storms while providing public benefits and enhancing natural resource values.

One Santa Monica resident eloquently stated his hope for a “ribbon of natural plants and terrain all along the beach.”

A Great Time was had by All!

A big thanks to everyone who attended or supported in-absentia the 2nd Annual Coastal Connections! We paid tribute to an incredible group of honorees, enjoyed Pacific Park, and, most importantly, got to spend the evening with wonderful people…all along our Coast that we were celebrating!

As Tom Ford noted during our sunset Program, each honoree—Terranea Resort, ultimate volunteer Beth Ryan, and filmmaker and environmentalist Leslie Iwerks—knows how to get it done by rolling up their sleeves and inspiring others to do so. They are a natural fit with The Bay Foundation and we are proud to have been able to honor them and their work. Their tribute videos are now posted on our YouTube Channel for you to review and share!

To see photos from the event and to see the program and our wonderful list of sponsors, Honorary Hosts and Host Committee, please click here, and see the “2nd Annual Coastal Connections” option.

Thanks again, and what a great jumping off point for the remainder of 2016!
