California’s MPAs preserve our stunning marine ecosystems for future generations. Event begins with a ceremonial blessing from Chumash community, followed by the rare opportunity to see a tomol, the Chumash redwood planked and sewn canoe, the “Xax A’lul-koy” (Great Dolphin) at the beach, and guests can enjoy storytelling by Chumash elders.  L.A. County lifeguards will be on hand to provide information on ocean safety and Malibu Makos will offer free surf instruction adjacent to the event. L.A. Waterkeeper will have their boat offshore, crewed by students from the Sherman Indian School, after conducting an MPA Watch Boat-Based Survey. Partners will be on hand providing marine science and watershed education.  From 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.: join our collaborative partners from around L.A. and Honor the Ocean all day long. Our collaborative partners will provide marine education and fun activities.
