Refinery takes students on tour of Oceano Dunes

Some Guadalupe students took a visit to an oil refinery to visit nature.

The Phillips 66 Refinery let students from the Dunes Center in Guadalupe come to the beachfront next to the refinery for the afternoon.

The dunes center has an afternoon-school education program that includes a dozen third to fifth graders.

The program helps students of low income, Spanish speaking families.

They were studying for a botany class about plants in the wild.

The students talked with a guide about plants on the dunes.

"Being where were at so close to the dunes, it kind of a gem of the Central Coast and the educations important for the future of the preservation of this area" said Phillips 66 Refinery site manager Jerry Stumbo.

Phillips 66 has donated $25,000 to the Guadalupe Dunes Center.
