Earth Team has returned to San Lorenzo High School this year!
Ben McLaughlin, this year’s campus coordinator, interviewed students at San Lorenzo High before narrowing candidate decisions down to 14 wonderful, hardworking interns.
This year Earth Team interns at San Lorenzo High can expect to work on a variety of environmental and STEM projects focused on watershed health. Interns will be working hard to ensure that the watersheds in their community are healthy and able to support native life. This work will include removing harmful invasive species, planting native species, removing trash, and maintaining habitat for endangered animals. We will be working on sites throughout the area, including Lake Chabot, Martin Luther King Jr. Regional Shoreline and the Alameda National Wildlife Refuge. Already this year, interns have begun to learn about the ecosystems that surround us all and the mounting struggles facing them as our climate changes. We will collaborate with project partners including East Bay Regional Parks District and the Friends of San Lorenzo Creek to increase community awareness of local environmental challenges.
We look forward to a fun-filled year at San Lorenzo High!
