Each year, SDFAS students partner with “I Love A Clean San Diego,” San Diego’s most influential advocate for sustainability and environmental education. For the 2nd consecutive year, students adopted Windansea Beach as our targeted annual beach clean-up. The Adopt-A-Beach program is not just about trash. It’s about the need for clean oceans, shorelines, and waterways. It is about Californians acting together to create lasting solutions to marine pollution. The harmful effects of marine debris are severe: negative economic and aesthetic impacts, harm and risk to human health and safety, injury and death to animals through entanglement and ingestion, and habitat destruction.
This afternoon, the 7th grade class worked together to scavenge the shores for non-organic waste, recyclables, and man-made debris. The students did a fantastic job fulfilling their civic duty by cleaning and caring for their local environment.
