Cross-border clean-up unites students

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Hundreds of local students got a chance to learn outside the classroom on Thursday.

It was all for I Love a Clean San Diego's Kid's Ocean Day at Border Field State Park.

Nearly 1500 elementary school students from San Diego and Tijuana took part in a beach clean-up on both sides of the U.S Mexico border. It's the first year of the bi-national event.

Students also formed a giant aerial art image of the words "United Por El Mar" on both sides of the border fence. It means "Unite for the Sea."
