Letter Writing Tips

Remember, you don’t have to be a professional writer or expert to have a valid opinion. We encourage you to use your own words as newspapers are less likely to print any letter that appears to be organized by a campaign. We also ask that you copy your letter or BCC us so even if your letter is not printed we can we can collect the letters and present them to targeted public officials. This way your message can do twice the good, and decision makers will be confronted with the opinions of their active constituents.


Simply sharing our campaign with a friend you can make a difference.

Guided Nature Walk:
Turtle Trek

Saturday, July 6, 2019
8:00AM - 10:00AM

Close-toed shoes required. Also, good treads on shoes are best after rains. And kids under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. For more information or to RSVP, email

Our walk begins with a brief orientation to our wetlands.  We will discuss their history and see an important portion of them, including the Pumpkin Patch property, as we walk along the San Gabriel River and on across Second Street to view the sea turtles. On our return, we will stop at Zedler Marsh, where there is a nursery for wetlands plants and where restoration is in process. We will then walk on the levee back to our meeting place. In addition to the sea turtles, we will observe many different kinds of interesting wildlife.

Where: Meet in the driveway/parking area at the corner of 1st Street and PCH in Seal Beach. There will be signs.
