Take Action at the Offshore Kelp Forest
The eighth annual Kelp Fest will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Main Beach, Saturday, April 22.
Supporters intend to take action by cleaning up the kelp forest offshore north of Main Beach at 1 p.m. “Hop on a board or kayak, snorkel, swim or scuba… and together let’s collect as much plastic and garbage as we can,” says local Rich German. “All mermaids and mermen are welcome.” Bring your own bag to collect trash, he advises.
Those staying onshore will see educational displays, arts and crafts, and live performances that acknowledge the role of kelp and Laguna’s Marine Protected Areas.
