Dive into the magic of Kids Ocean Day! This video takes you behind the scenes, showcasing the dedication and effort our education team puts into making this event unforgettable. From recruiting volunteers to creating inspiring aerial art designs, every detail is meticulously planned to give students an incredible day at the beach.

Kids Ocean Day is an annual event designed to engage students from communities facing barriers to coastal access and disproportionate environmental pollution. This program empowers the next generation to value and protect our environment through conservation and advocacy. In 2024, 1,000 elementary students from inland Orange County joined us in Huntington Beach, collectively removing over 300 pounds of trash from the coast.

Sponsored by the California Coastal Commission, Kids Ocean Day events are held in San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Humboldt County, and Orange County. We’ve proudly coordinated the Orange County Kids Ocean Day since 2008, and we’re excited to share our journey with you!
