Description

In 1985, Dorothy Green learned that barely-treated sewage was being dumped into the Santa Monica Bay. She got angry. She got organized. She founded Heal the Bay. After cleaning up that mess, she made new goals: environmental education in all California schools by 2010 and all Santa Monica Bay beaches get Beach Report Card “A” grades by 2015 are just two of them.

When Andy Lipkis heard that L.A.’s smog was killing the trees in the San Bernardino Mountains, he organized a group of campers to plant smog-tolerant seedlings. He was only 15 years old. Since 1973, TreePeople has inspired Angelinos to take personal responsibility for the urban forest through education, training and support.

Fourteen ecological zones, 1,000 plant species and 400 vertebrate species can be found in Mono Lake’s watershed and surrounding basin. It is one of California’s richest natural areas. Frances Spivey-Weber, executive director of the Mono Lake Committee, is dedicated to protecting and restoring this ecosystem.
