Education and lifestyle changes.
The Drains to Ocean Education Program focuses on raising awareness of water pollution. We target cleaning up pollution on our beaches, in our streets, and throughout our waterways. Our goal is to help citizens become more aware of their choices and to take small actions that collectively have a large impact on reducing pollution in our world. We engage the public through community service opportunities, informative presentations, and empowering a local network of active volunteers.
