Ocean Day sites along the California Coast.
In 2021, students were encouraged to create a piece of original artwork to illustrate what they love about the ocean. All of the artwork from students across the state has been put together to create a digital mosaic. The main image of the mosaic features the art of 5th grader Tracy N. from Morningside Elementary School in Garden Grove, California.
The Kids Ocean Day Art Contest and Picture Mosaic was produced by Spectral Q.
KIDS OCEAN DAY
June 2, 2022
Kids Ocean Day is a state-wide marine debris education program funded the California Coastal Commission and coordinated locally by Friends of the Dunes and the Bureau of Land Management. This year, about 600 Humboldt County students will receive classroom lessons focusing on the health of coastal and marine environments, with an emphasis on local watersheds. On June 2nd, students are bussed for free to the Mike Thompson Wildlife Area on the South Spit of Humboldt Bay for a morning of clean-up and dune restoration before coming together in an aerial art formation (see examples of past years below).
We have reached capacity for 2022 and are no longer accepting schools. To sign up for the 2023 waitlist, or for any questions, please email the Education Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
