OCEAN DAY

PROTECT WHAT YOU LOVE

Thursday, June 6

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. About 800 Humboldt County students will receive classroom lessons focusing on the health of coastal and marine environments. During the Ocean Day event in June, these students will gather at the Mike Thompson Wildlife Area on the South Spit of the Humboldt Bay for a day of beach clean-up and invasive plant removal. After all this hard work, students will sit in an aerial art design while a plane flies over to capture the image. This program is completely free for schools, even the buses are paid for.

 

To sign up your class, or to volunteer, please email us.
