Malibu beaches are lined with “private street” signs, but as activist Jenny Price has pointed out, many of these beaches are publicly owned.

And now, the fourth Malibu Public Beaches Safaris can show you exactly what beaches are there for your surfing pleasure — and how to find, park, walk, picnic and sunbathe there: “Each safari visits two different beaches. Skills-enhancing activities include sign watching, trailblazing the public-private boundary, a no-kill hunt for accessways, and a public easement potluck.”

When: East Malibu beach tours happen:

>> Sun., Aug. 2 from 11 am - 2:30 pm (FULL)

>> Sun., Aug. 16, from 9 am - 12:30 pm

>> Sat., Aug. 22 from 3 pm - 6:30 pm.

A West Malibu beach tour happens Sun., Aug. 23 from 4 pm - 7:30 pm.

Cost: Free with RSVP by emailing info@laurbanrangers.org with tour date, name and number of people.

The safaris are put together by the Los Angeles Urban Rangers, a collective of artists, writers, architects, and urban designers who explore LA and work to help others do likewise. Can’t make the safari? Download the Malibu Public Beaches Guide (PDF)!

Reclaim Malibu's public beaches
Some of Malibu's public beaches aren't very welcoming to the public -- so urban rangers are taking beach safaris.
