Kids Ocean Day

A nonprofit organization

$7,574 raised by 44 donors

Kids Ocean Day is a comprehensive environmental education program that consists of school presentations, lesson plans, student art, live beach events and aerial art projects. We utilize each asset to educate students on their environmental impact  and challenge them to recycle, reduce litter and participate in beach clean-ups. These interactive and firsthand experiences motivate kids to play an active role in caring for their environment and increase the likelihood that this behavior becomes part of their lifestyle.

The Kids Ocean Day annual field trip provides students a fun, hands-on opportunity to experience the beach. By bringing classroom lessons and the school presentation to life, the day helps enhance what students have learned by directly connecting kids to nature.  Kids participate in a beach clean-up, create aerial art and spend the afternoon playing in the sand. It is a tangible and compelling way to focus their attention on the issues of local pollution and foster a sense of personal responsibility. At the same time, it allows kids to bask in the wonders of the ocean and the beach. These field trips have been the magical part of the environmental education program.  

With your donation, we are able to send more kids to the beach, so that they can fall in love with the ocean and learn how to care for the Earth. Kids Ocean Day is about that first WOW moment of pure JOY when a kid, who has never been to the beach before, steps off the bus, sees the BEAUTY, falls in love and thinks they can save the EARTH.  We believe that first moment of DISCOVERY is the catalyst for a lifetime of  caring for the planet. 

Kids Ocean Day is a project of The Malibu Foundation for Environmental Education, a Los Angeles based 501(c)3 organization that specializes in school outreach and coastal quality issues. Over 750,000  school children have participated in the Kids Ocean Day program for the past 27 years.

Your gift brings our Kids Ocean Day educational school presentations (now virtually) to schools and provides the opportunity for a child to discover how their choices can impact the environment and its inhabitants!

PLEASE help us continue sending kids to the beach for 2022!
