KIDS' OCEAN DAY 2017, Showing Humboldt County event organized by Friends of the Dunes

In honor of World Oceans Day, 8,000 California students took part in the statewide Kids' Ocean Day Adopt-A-Beach cleanups at six events from Humboldt to San Diego. They learned about ocean pollution prevention at school and then took a field trip to enjoy a beach day, clean the coast, and form amazing art messages on the sand. In 2017, the "Come Together" theme was a call to action for people to join forces and address the problems facing our ocean, such as marine pollution.

In honor of World Oceans Day 2016, a short video was released to showcase nearly 20 years of aerial art formations as part of Kids' Ocean Day. We hope you enjoy the video.
