Pinole Valley High interns did an amazing job engaging members of the community about their local watershed through an interactive watershed matching activity game at the Shoreline Festival on October 1st. Community members were asked to match the correct habitat to the area drawn on a watershed map. The game aimed to teach players about the unique habitats in a watershed and how they are all interconnected. Interns also provided Shoreline Festival attendees with prizes and informational brochures.

While interns were not hard at work speaking with attendees at the Earth Team booth, they explored the festival and learned all they could about the many other exhibitors at the event. After speaking to each, they were asked to share what they learned, and what they liked most.
