over 700,000 children have participated in beach and ocean preservation efforts, Via Kids Ocean Day

KIDS OCEAN DAY is a project of The Malibu Foundation for Environmental Education that specializes in school outreach and coastal quality issues. Over 735,000 school children have participated in the KIDS OCEAN DAY Program.

Eight-year-old Allen Martinez had never been to the beach before participating in the Malibu Foundation’s KIDS OCEAN DAY Adopt-A-Beach School Program. Quoted by The Los Angeles Times on October 5, 1993, he said, “Cleaning the beach with my classmates made me feel hopeful.” Gazing at the horizon, a plastic litterbag dangling at his side, he remarked on how blue the water looked. “The whole place looks so beautiful, I think I can save the Earth.”
This comprehensive environmental education program consists of: school assemblies, lesson plans, beach clean-ups and an aerial art project.

It is designed to motivate teachers and K – 12 children to care about the beaches and oceans. It demonstrates how the beaches and oceans get dirty and provides “hands-on” opportunities to make a difference by recycling, reducing litter and cleaning up the neighborhoods and beaches.

This program excites and inspires teachers and children to care for the world today and to increase their appreciation for the beaches and oceans. It incorporates one of the most important issues of our community: stormwater run-off and the effect on water quality and marine life.

Our annual KIDS OCEAN DAY Adopt-A-Beach Clean-Up field trip connects KIDS to the beaches and oceans and contributes to their appreciation of our shared resources. This experience actually gets children’s feet and hands in the sand. One of the basic concepts of Environmental Education is to get children outside and in touch with nature.
