Ways to help


Our field trip programs connect thousands of students each year to nature spaces within the highly urbanized Ballona Creek Watershed. Volunteer docents help make that happen! Docents receive training in local ecology and interpretation techniques and then work collaboratively to lead students in grades 3-8 on tours throughout the school year.

Habitat Restoration
