Nearby Nature

ILACSD’s Nearby Nature program connects students to nature near their school such as canyons and parks. After a brief lesson, students are led by our staff on an educational hike through a natural area. Students are introduced to local flora and fauna and discover the importance of protecting natural places. Engaging first-hand with the natural world provides students with a greater appreciation for their environment and a desire to act as environmental stewards in their daily lives.

Kids’ Ocean Day

Kids’ Ocean Day

Kids’ Ocean Day

Kids’ Ocean Day inspires students to be a voice for change as part of an international movement. Since 1998, ILACSD has partnered with the California Coastal Commission to unite students from underserved communities in a beach cleanup, which culminates in creating an aerial art image. This living art piece, only visible from the sky, empowers the global community to protect our life-giving oceans. This annual event magnifies the importance of the ocean and underscores the connection between students’ inland actions and the health of our ocean.
