The Malibu Foundation for Environmental Education is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization specializing in school outreach and coastal quality issues. The Malibu Foundation is a Los Angeles City based organization that honors the Malibu name that means: "Where the surf sounds loudly" and "Where the mountains meet the sea." The appreciation of the beaches and oceans is the value that drives the Foundation to outreach to underserved communities in Los Angeles and to get children’s feet and hands in the sand during our annual KIDS OCEAN DAY Adopt-A-Beach Clean-Up. It is this experience that connects KIDS to the beaches and oceans and contributes to their appreciation of our shared resources.
The City of Los Angeles recognized and commended the Malibu Foundation and KIDS OCEAN DAY on June 8, 2008.
The Malibu Foundation's Adopt-A-Beach School Assembly Program has been presented over 2800 times to 593,000 California school children since October 1991. Over 108,000 kids have participated in the last 18 annual KIDS OCEAN DAY Adopt-A-Beach Clean-Ups.
