Gallery: READER TIP: Kids Ocean Day in Los Angeles


Talk about eco inspiration! More than 3,700 elementary school students hit the beaches on June 6th, 2008 to celebrate Kids Ocean Day in Los Angeles. The giant aerial art display send us the message of “Kids in Action” when it comes to preserving our ocean and its habitats.

The event, hosted by the Malibu Foundation and sponsored by the City of Los Angeles Stormwater Program and California Coastal Commission, also included a massive beach cleanup on Dockweiler Beach. The event was the climactic celebration of 20 elementary schools that participated in ocean presentations held throughout the academic year in and around the City of Los Angeles.

    This project is SO awesome!!! How’d they organize ALL those people; (just like tle letters A-Z on Sesame Street!!) I think the messege shouts P.O.O Protect Our Oceans, LOUD & CLEAR!!! These GIANT works of art remind me of the hundreds-of-feet hight sand sculptures in Peru!

    Good idea to teach kids how to go green and protect mother nature.

    I’ve never heard of kid’s ocean day before. The kids did a good job though, took a lot of effort. Not be picky or anything but North America looks kind of small :).
