It is my pleasure to introduce this year’s 2023-2024 Earth Team internship class at Arroyo High School. All of these students have a great drive to help their community and are passionate about beautifying their space on campus and in their neighborhoods!
My name is Elena I applied to earth team because I love adventures in nature and I feel earth team will allow me to do this activity more. I am most excited about learning how to make smart decisions everyday that will improve the environment. Also, environmental topics I would like to have a helping hand toward is native animals population improvement and a decrease in invasive plants. I am excited for this year and to make lots of memories.
My name is Lynnsy and I joined Earth Team for a second year because of all the impactful work we did and the amazing people I met last year. I love being outdoors, and environmental science is something I’ve grown to be really passionate about. I want to help endangered ecosystems and species, and preserve nature for the long term future. Apart from science, I love listening to, teaching, and playing music. I look forward to another fun year in Earth Team!
My name is Ethan and I applied for earth team because my friends said they all really had fun while doing it, and I could use this opportunity to do more service and get fresh air. What I’m most excited for this school year would be making cool sculptures in my ceramics class. An environmental topic that I would like to solve or have a helping hand in would be ocean pollution and restoration, but land restoration is cool too. The ocean and plants are some of my favorite things, so it’d be cool to be more involved with them!
