Join Sea Stewards celebrating sharks and educating kids May 23rd

image002Kid’s Ocean Day Adopt-a-Beach Program-
May 23, 2013
Ocean Beach, San Francisco

Join us on Thursday, May 23, (My Birthday) with over 850 underserved school children from Marin and San Francisco Counties on Ocean Beach cleaning up trash, and creating aerial art to share their message of conservation with the world.
To volunteer, contact Wendy Dalia, at wdalia@audubon.org.
This program is funded by the California Coastal Commission’s Whale Tale license plate program. Now in its 20th year, this event is celebrated in 7 locations on the California Coast, involving 8,000 children. This will be the fifth year The Richardson Bay Audubon Center will be coordinating the San Francisco event!
We need 40 volunteers to make this day a success!

10-15 volunteers needed to arrive at 6:30am to help lay out the aerial art outlines in the sand. This is a fascinating process, directed by a pro aerial art designer!
25-30 volunteers needed to arrive at 8am for a volunteer orientation and assist with:
Greeting and directing arriving buses
Greeting and directing classes arriving by car, public transportation, walking
Assist with the distribution of supplies (gloves, data cards etc.)
Provide first aid (if you are certified) & manage the water & snack station for volunteers
Roam the beach to interact with students, help maintain safety, and inspire/be inspired, help get students to where they need to be
Assist with getting everyone into the art at the designated time
AND cheer on the kids while they wait for the helicopter to fly over and take the photo!

This is a fantastic opportunity to reinforce the importance of clean oceans and watershed and ocean conservation to over 850 students and our communities – and you can be in the aerial art photo too!
