Every summer, Kids Ocean Day brings thousands of Los Angeles area elementary school students to Dockweiler Beach for a beach clean-up and aerial art event. The Kids Ocean Day Dockweiler Beach clean-up, organized by the Malibu Foundation, nets approximately two tons of trash every year. After they clean the beach, the students participate in an aerial art piece and a photo is broadcast to media outlets. It’s the children’s chance to take a stand in the sand and send a powerful environmental message to the world.
This class introduces students to the basics of paddling a kayak in a mild setting and at a relaxed pace. Students will learn about kayaks, paddles, gear and clothing before learning to launch and being introduced to the basic paddle strokes. This class is a great way for those considering kayaking to try it out. After the class the group will take a 2 to 3 hour paddle tour of the area to practice skills and enjoy the scenery. A special guest from Heal the Bay will be on hand to discuss local waterways and the ocean ecosystem during the tour.
