CURes/Heal the Bay Creek Week

Urban Ecology High School summer field program.

Spend a week exploring the Ballona Creek Watershed!

Ballona Creek is a nine-mile long flood protection channel that drains the Los Angeles basin, from the Santa Monica Mountains on the north, the Harbor Freeway (110) on the east, and the Baldwin Hills on the south. The Ballona Creek Watershed totals about 130 square miles. Its land use consists of 64% residential, 8% commercial, 4% industrial, and 17% open space.

Join Heal the Bay and the Center for Urban Resilience as we explore the hidden waterways of Los Angeles and examine the path of water as it makes its way through the city.
