Hey guys, it's me again. This past Friday, we had a group of high school interns from a company called Vertex join us at Carson Beach. There were 30 of them, and 6 Harbor Explorers. Vertex had a variety of reasons for coming to Carson on that day, and they persevered through the rain and gloom that hovered over us for most of the morning and early afternoon.
The teens also took some time to do a beach cleanup, where they combed the surrounding areas for trash and helped keep our beach as clean as we like it. At the end, we tested the interns by asking what they learned today, and to give us something personal about what they love and appreciate about the harbor. Overall, it was a great day because we got to have different kinds of conversations with these interns than we are used to, and it was great working with people on a more peer-level as well. I think they learned a lot from us and I hope they take this information with them into their future endeavors!
Until next time,
