1,000 students gather for beach clean-up

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Almost 1,000 young people gathered in Mission Bay Thursday for the 20th annual Kids' Ocean Day.

Students from seven San Diego County schools spent almost two hours cleaning up trash from the beaches and shorelines. Then, they came together to form a giant aerial art image of a child listening to a sea shell, meant to illustrate the importance of living in harmony with the marine environment.

"We have almost 70 out of those 1,000 students that actually have never been to the beach before, they're from San Diego. So this is a way we bring them out, connect them with nature and we show them that helping out the environment is fun," Pauline Martinson of I Love a Clean San Diego said.

Thursday's event was coordinated by I Love a Clean San Diego.
