Earth Team is back this year with another exciting program at Independence High school, our first year with interns at this awesome school! The Sustainable Youth Internship program at Antioch have started learning about the climate crisis, watersheds in the bay area and will be performing experiments and water quality tests in the coming months. More exciting things to come as interns as interns learn more about the natural environment.
