Dear Ballona Wetlands Advocates,
This is the first issue of The Egret Corner! We are thrilled to share our monthly newsletter with all our supporters and keep you all updated on our current projects.
Here are some updates on our current projects:
Although our school visits and field trips are put on hold due to Covid-19, we are still working hard on finding new ways to communicate and interact with the community. It is important to keep the community connected with nature especially during these difficult times. We, of course, are adhering to all safety protocols introduced for everyone's safety.
Currently, we are reaching out to community programs that may have an interest in learning about nature through Zoom or videos. We are also researching and planning ways to start providing small field trips while maintaining safety protocols and experiencing nature.
Our new video series, with a focus on Ballona Wetlands, is one of the ways we are connecting to others.

Our water quality field research is undergoing new safety changes. We anticipate that our research activities will resume by the end of July.
Walter will still send action alerts and advocacy/litigation updates as needed. This monthly newsletter will focus on our outreach, nature education, and field research. The option to update your subscription profile is in the footer of every email.
Please enjoy the content below
and let us know what you think of the new newsletter and/or if there is any information you'd like us to share by replying to this email.
