May 28, Huntington State Beach
A fleet of 25 school buses arrived at Huntington State Beach on the morning of May 28, 2015. Kids grades 3-6 armed with rubber gloves are on a mission to “Unite for the Ocean” by picking up trash and gathering to send a giant message to their community that they can make a difference.
This year, over 1,300 students and 200 adults gathered to create this image that urges the community to unite for the protection of our ocean. This event was part of a series all along the California coast extending all the way into Mexico for the very first time! To learn more, visit kidsoceanday.org
