At the west end of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), a remarkable
ecological success story is unfolding on approximately 307 acres of sand dunes,
home to more than 1,000 species of plants and animals. Set aside as a natural wildlife preserve, The LAX Dunes restoration area is the largest remaining coastal dune area in Southern California. Native animals and plants that once seemed destined for extinction, including the beautiful and delicate El Segundo Blue Butterfly and the silvery legless lizard, are thriving once again, thanks to the restoration of their habitat.
Partnering with "Big Sunday", please join fellow South Bay Bruins for a day of service, working to restore these dunes to their native state and beautifying the area. Projects include removing non-native plant species, scaling back invasive plants and cleaning up trash. Youth 12+ are welcome to participate and can receive volunteer service credit.
*Gloves required. Sturdy shoes, hat and sunscreen recommended. Gardening tools will be provided.
