NON-PROFIT OF THE WEEK

Santa Barbara Channelkeeper
updated: Mar 15, 2014, 10:00 AM

The mission of Santa Barbara Channelkeeper is to protect and restore the Santa Barbara Channel and its watersheds. Through science-based advocacy, education, field work and enforcement, Channelkeeper defends our community's right to clean water and informs, inspires and empowers people to speak and act for our waterways.

We work on the water and in communities throughout the South Coast to monitor local waterways, restore aquatic ecosystems, advocate for clean water, enforce environmental laws, and educate and engage citizens in devising and implementing solutions to local water pollution problems. Our efforts are focused on cleaning up the leading sources of pollution that threaten the health of our local beaches, waterways and wetlands, including storm water and urban runoff, sewage, agricultural operations, offshore oil drilling, and large municipal and industrial dischargers.

Channelkeeper has developed a strong base of support in the community and has achieved many victories for clean water. We've compelled some of the area's worst polluters to clean up, involved more than 1,000 volunteers in our programs, convinced regulatory agencies and public officials to strengthen the policies that protect our local waterways, and educated tens of thousands of students and citizens through hands-on activities in classrooms, in the field, and through a variety of media and public outreach initiatives.

The Blue Water Ball, Channelkeeper's annual fundraiser, will be held on April 5, 2014 at Montecito Country Club. This year's honoree, Dr. Wallace J. Nichols, will deliver an inspiring keynote address. For more information and to purchase tickets, go to: sbck.org/event/bluewaterball
