Kids’ Ocean Day Adopt-a-Beach Program

950 elementary school students will converge on Ocean Beach to clean up trash and create a giant aerial art diplay to share their message of conservation with the world.

This program is funded by the California Coastal Commission’s Whale Tale license plate program. Now in its 24th year, this event is celebrated in 7 locations on the California Coast.

We need 35 volunteers to arrive at 8:30am for a volunteer orientation and to assist with: bus arrivals and parking, on-site registration, directing classes to their cleanup site, distributing supplies (trash bags, gloves, etc.), providing first aid (if you are certified), managing the water station and the snack station for volunteers, and most of all cheering on the kids while they wait for the helicopter to take their photo!

All students will be on their way back to school by 1pm. A post-event debrief for all volunteers and tacos will immediately follow the event. Tacos are generously being provided by Rubio’s Tacos.

This is a fantastic opportunity to reinforce the importance of clean oceans and watershed and ocean conservation - and you can be in the aerial art photo too! Each year is a blast! Come join in the fun!
