School Give Back – Announcing An Exciting Change to the Education Fund!
Bring Your Classroom to the Beach
Our School Give Back program started in 2022 with the goal to bring students and classrooms to the beach in order to give them an opportunity to discover the wonders of the ocean and to learn about the benefits of preserving its beauty and health.
This educational and on-site program is designed to:
- Engage students through an organized beach cleanup led by a professional naturalist
- Involve them with trash weighing, counting and sorting
- Educate them about marine debris, single-use plastic, the dangers of micro plastic, and more
- Raise awareness and connect youth with the local, coastal, and native environment
- Teach them about our Earth Honoree of the year
- Inspire and enlist them to be an Earth Hero everyday and bring their new knowledge home
- Empower them to participate in ocean stewardship
Students coming to our School Give Back outings will have a chance to apply their geography, social studies, and math skills while learning to work as a team. These programs also offer great opportunities for teachers to follow up with in classroom activities.
Each school outing will be guided by a trained naturalist who fosters teamwork, embraces experiential learning, and offers education to go with the hands-on experience. Together they work as a team to make a difference for the earth and ocean and celebrate their achievements for the day with an Earth Hero ceremony.

Be an Education Fund Sponsor to Help the Local Schools
Every year PBC hosts a growing number of schools for our coastal cleanup and habitat restoration events. It may be hard to believe, but many of the children have never seen the ocean nor coastline! Your donation will support our events for children of all ages, where they are guided by a Naturalist and learn first hand about the impact litter has on our environment as well as what they can do to keep our environment clean for a healthy ocean and healthy planet. Your kind donation of $5, 000 would help support at least 10 school events, as well as support our K-12 educational content and classroom engagements.
