From April 4 to 7, National Geographic Mission Programs, Full Circle Fund, the 34th America’s Cup Healthy Ocean Project and Restore the Delta hosted a special Photo Camp for 20 students from San Francisco and the Stockton to document their journey from the Delta to the San Francisco Bay. The weekend was jam-packed of events and opportunities for learning about water conservation and environmental issues, but not just for students!
Several Full Circle Fund Members and supporters were present this weekend to participate in a lecture by Sylvia Earle, Oceanographer and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, attend a beach cleanup on Treasure Island, and watch the students’ final multimedia presentations at the Aquarium of the Bay in San Francisco.
Said Sylvia Earle to the students:
"I just wish that everyone who is writing California's water policy would do what you are doing this weekend. You have power. You have knowledge. The question is how do you deploy your power to make a difference."
Special thanks to Susan Reeve and Michael Frost, our Members who helped lead this initiative.
