April Ride with the Mayor: April 23rd

Join us April 23 for a ride along the beach with the Mayor

The theme for the April Mayor’s Ride will be a ride along the beach to a presentation by the The Bay Foundation and the Annenberg Community Beach House about the Beach Restoration Pilot Project.

“The Santa Monica Beach Restoration pilot project of approximately three acres aims to return a healthy and beautiful ecosystem to this beach, which in turn, will address climate change issues for both humans and wildlife. The project will evaluate increased protection for our coastal infrastructure and residences from sea level rise and erosion, while also providing a vital refuge for invertebrates, birds, and rare coastal vegetation species. It will also serve as a model for the region, showing that heavy recreational use of beaches and meaningful habitat restoration are both possible!”
