Some local students hit the beach Tuesday morning to do their part to keep the coast clean.
Students from Alice Shaw Elementary School in Orcutt organized the clean up day at Avila Beach. It's part of their "Educate to find a Solution to Pollution" program. The fourth and fifth graders say it's important to keep trash off the beaches and out of the ocean so animals can stay healthy. "Animals think it's food and they eat it, but it's not food and they're going to die if they keep on eating this food," said Ajaden Welter, a student participating in the cleanup, "so we've got to pick it up so we can help the animals survive."
The students say they picked up everything from cigarette butts to plastic bags. Aside from getting the beach clear, they hope the clean up encourages the public to stop littering.
