For Coastkeeper’s 14th Kids Ocean Day, we brought over 1,200 students to Huntington State Beach for a trash cleanup and aerial art demonstration.

With the help of dozens of volunteers and Orange County Coastkeeper staff, the students removed 188 pounds of trash from the beach. The day concluded with the students forming a giant message asking the world to “give us a chance.”

See what this annual celebration and day of action for our oceans is all about in the video below.
