KIDS OCEAN DAY

Kids Ocean Day is a state-wide marine debris education program funded by the California Coastal Commission and coordinated locally by Friends of the Dunes and the Bureau of Land Management. About 1,000 Humboldt County students will receive classroom lessons focusing on the health of coastal and marine environments. At the Kids Ocean Day event, students 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, and we can pay for a bus!
