Dear <<First Name>>, 

Happy Summer Solstice, Ocean lovers! We have been busy celebrating the season with beach cleanups, Hawaiian-themed game debuts, two new Beach Clean Up Stations (BCUS) in Pacifica and innovative art projects. Please read on for more details and to find out about our July 18th beach cleanup in Sausalito!
A Message from our Young Ocean Protectors
"Don't Litter Please." So says the sign made by Sara and her brother. The message is spelled out in plastic forks, gum wrappers and cigarette butts—trash collected on the young siblings' walk home from school. The ecowarriors hung the sign on a cigarette-butt littered street corner.

Sara is following in the footsteps of her mother, AOO volunteer Mary Sackett, who is credited with inspiring a 9-year old to set up BCUS at Lake Okoboji in Iowa. More on that coming soon.

A big thanks to our creative trash collectors!
Highlights from BioBlitz 2015
Tower of Life, a game created by AOO's Katie Strong, was a smash hit at BioBlitz, a 24-hour species-identification marathon at Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park sponsored by the National Park Service and National Geographic.
 
AOO's game, which incorporates aspects of the popular building-block game Jenga, received a wealth of compliments from scientists, educators, students and the general public at its BioBlitz debut. Her game educated and entertained more than 425 youth and 75 adults at BioBlitz. 

Tower of Life teaches players about the amazing biodiversity of Hawaii’s marine ecosystem and the interconnected 
nature of this system. Many teachers asked for the instructions to make the game for their classrooms and encouraged AOO to ask Jenga to manufacture it.
 
AOO donated the Tower of Life prototype to the Volcano School of Arts and Sciences. Tower of Life will be featured in the National Geographic Education Blog, and Jenga will donate blocks for additional versions of our fun-filled game. Please stay tuned for more updates and click here to view more photos from the event! 
SF Skate Club Cleans Up Ocean Beach
San Francisco Skate Club recently made Ocean Beach a little cleaner. Twenty-five of the club's youth removed more than 65 pounds of garbage from the beach during an Earth Day cleanup sponsored by AOO, Surfridrer Foundation and The Pizza Place on Noriega. Way to go SF Skate Club!
Join us for our next Beach Cleanup, 
Saturday, July 18th from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. 
at Horseshoe Cove, Sausalito.
 
We are meeting in front of the Presidio Yacht Club, Sausalito
No RSVP required.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact Katie at Katie@alloneocean.org or 415-933-9589.
Hope to see you there!
