Thank You All For Coming to Earth Day & EcoFest!

What an amazing day from start to finish!

We actually starting April 2nd with the first School Assembly! Nicole, our amazing biologist and speaker, did a brilliant job creating the Assembly presentation and delivering it to all but 5 of the schools! Thanks to her, thousands of kids where able to learn about the sea stars and the ocean.
Paula, another incredible volunteer, was responsible for the EcoFest booth coordination. Everything went smoothly and we can’t thank her enough for her hours and days of hard work. Jim our Vice President, is also responsible for the Groups to make sure that each one of them has a dedicated location to take care of. And we could go on and on! Each of our volunteers helped in there own way and together this Earth Day was absolutely THE BEST EVER!
