Laguna Ocean Foundation thrives on the generous support of partners who believe in protecting the beaches, tidepools and kelp forests of the Laguna Coast. Thanks to them, we continue to educate thousands of visitors annually and bring ocean awareness to the community through events like KelpFest.

Sponsors and donors also provide important support for the Aliso Creek Estuary restoration program. The Aliso Estuary is one of Laguna’s most unique and neglected treasures and is envisioned to return to a natural healthy habitat for native fish, birds and other wildlife. In collaboration with multiple partners, Laguna Ocean Foundation is working to restore this public resource and create a unique sense of place that celebrates the magical convergence of freshwater and ocean ecosystems.
