That’s a wrap on Kids’ Ocean Day 2014!

Today’s post comes from our Education Coordinator, Erika Bjorkquist.Erika-team

The 2014 Kid’s Ocean Day has come and gone I am even more impressed than last year. First, I have to hand it to our amazing educator, Monica, for creating such an amazing aerial art design. The throwback to our first mascot, Pelican Pete, celebrates the 60 years ILACSD has been working to educate and empower individuals to conserve the environment. Kudos!

Next, we had AMAZING volunteers! A big thanks to Brown and Caldwell, Enel Green Power, Kohl’s, National University, Prometheus Labs, Sony, Target, and Verint Systems Inc., and ILACSD Board Members for all of your help – we couldn’t have done it without ya’ll.

Lastly, thanks to the 791 students (61 first time beach goers), 33 teachers, and 78 chaperones, who decided to make a difference – your impact will have a lasting impression [that can be seen from the sky!].

Want to get involved? This program is funded by the California Coastal Commission’s Whale Tail Grant – next time you see someone driving with a whale tail license plate, give them a thumbs up, or even purchase one yourself! You could be providing an underprivileged student with their first opportunity to go to the beach.
