Earth Team interns from Antioch High have officially began their internship! The first two meetings were spent their first learning all about the San Francisco Bay Delta Watershed. Their mission this year is help restore and protect this vibrant watershed.
The SF Bay Delta Watershed has suffered many environmental impacts such as the abundance of invasive species, immense habitat degradation, and poor water quality. The Antioch Earth Team this year hopes to help the watershed thrive once more. Interns were shocked to learn that their local watershed provides drinking water for over 20 million Californians! This provided them with even more incentive to devote much of their internship to improving the SF Bay Delta Watershed. Interns will be working with Friends of Marsh Creek and the Big Break Shoreline to restore aquatic habitats throughout Antioch.
