I agree... But I do welcome them... So we can try to educate them on our stance. I'm betting most of the people who show up for the clean up have no idea what heal the bay is supporting. Let's take the opportunity this event offers to try to bring them to our side! http://www.facebook.com/events/208893969221600/

@David Thanks for posting these very important FACTS that people here in Malibu need to be aware of.

Thank you Jessica, The Why Support Heal the Bay was not directed at the Patch it was a question for the people who read the patch and support Heal the Bay. The Patch is a wonderful place for interactive news, information, and exchange of differing views.

Dave While I generally support Heal the Bay, I think they are wrong when it comes to the Malibu Lagoon. I will support you in your efforts and hope you will support me as well in my quest to become first Green in Congress. I would be happy to talk to you more about this issue. You can reach me at steinman2012@gmail.com!
