9:30 am-12:30 pm

Bolsa Chica Wetlands Kayak Clean-Up

Get your hands dirty and help restore the wetlands. Only 10 minutes from the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach, Bolsa Chica Conservancy connects the community through hands-on restoration and education in wetland science, watersheds, coastal ecology, and environmental sustainability. Spend the morning helping to restore native habitats at Bolsa Chica by cleaning up these pristine wetlands by kayak. This is a rare opportunity to get out on the water and help with invasive plant and trash removal from the marsh and dune habitats. Actual kayak time will be one hour and fifteen minutes. The kayak clean-up will include roundtrip transportation and a light breakfast and will conclude with lunch at the Hyatt’s Sunset Grille, featuring specialty dishes from surf destinations around the world. Tour will depart at 9:30 a.m. and return to the Hyatt by approximately 12:30 p.m.

Cost: US$125

Who Should Attend

This event is open to all participants. Due to the sensitive nature of the wetlands, space is extremely limited and will be filled on a first come, first served basis. If you register and are no longer able to attend the clean-up, please email BSR2017@meetgreen.com to cancel. We will confirm your participation one week prior to the event. Closed to press.

Backstage at Disney


Please note, this tour is sold out.

The Walt Disney Company’s commitment to environmental stewardship and conservation is no better exemplified than at the Disneyland Resort. As the resort has grown over the years from a single park in 1955 to a multiday resort destination that continues to expand, Disney has consistently found innovative ways to reduce waste to landfill, potable water consumption, and emissions. During this 2.5-hour tour through Disney California Adventure park, learn about these specific efforts and how the Disneyland Resort uses “Disney Environmentality”—acting with the environment in mind—to embed environmental stewardship into its daily operations and guest experience. This unique opportunity will include roundtrip transportation, a light breakfast, and a boxed lunch. Tour will depart at 9 a.m. and return to the Hyatt by approximately 2 p.m.
