Everett joined the CWC team in the summer of 2016 and dove into water quality monitoring in the Urban Watch program. Learn how Everett’s experience with CWC provided learning opportunities beyond the classroom:

“Being a resident in California, the Santa Cruz beachfront and surrounding rivers and bodies of water have been one of my favorite places to visit. After finishing my Junior year at UC Santa Cruz where I am majoring in Environmental studies combined with Biology, I decided to look for more opportunities to become involved with the area. I applied for an internship at the Coastal Watershed Council under the monitoring and restoration category. The staff at CWC are extremely resourceful and taught me valuable skills that cannot be found inside the classroom, such as conducting water quality field work that includes collection of water quality parameters, bacteria and nutrient samples and conducting field observations. The internship provided me with an opportunity to actually contribute to the restoration of the watershed in the area that I live and love. Thank you CWC for this opportunity!”
