“I am a student in the Home Based Partnership Ocean Guardians class. On a weekly basis, we meet at HBP and walk down to Maria Ygnacio Creek to examine the water. We conduct tests on the water, and make measurements to determine its condition.”
So begins the first entry of our new Ocean Guardians blog. As an Ocean Guardians School, we work hard to learn about ways to protect our watershed, understand human impacts on the Channel Islands Marine Sanctuary and ocean, and educate others about what we learn. You’ll find photos, drawings, informative articles, questions, answers discussions, and resources as our kids share their understanding of our watershed and ways to preserve its health.
“…I am thrilled to learn more about our creeks, and maybe one day inspire others to help take great care of this beautiful, natural resource.” http://oceanguardians.blogspot.com/
