The Marine Science Institute is excited to take part in the 22nd annual Kids Ocean Day Adopt-A-Beach Clean-Up. This clean-up unites students along California’s coast, from Humboldt County to San Diego, in a project that is relevant, interactive and empowering.
Over the next few months, MSI’s instructors will visit schools in San Francisco and Marin to teach students, through engaging assemblies and classroom visits, about their important role in keeping our water clean and healthy. Students will see how every neighborhood is connected to the ocean and how communities near and far are connected through the watershed. Everyone can impact the marine environment and make a positive change, and participants in Adopt-A-Beach will be empowered to do so right here in the Bay Area.
On May 8, more than 500 students will converge on Ocean Beach in San Francisco to participate in a huge beach clean-up. This fun field trip will not only bolster the lessons learned at school, but will also motivate students to put these lessons into action by taking part in this statewide, hands-on project. As a final celebration of the students’ achievement, a photograph will be taken by helicopter of the students on the beach as they form the image of a leopard shark and the words ”Unite for the Sea.”
