Generation Earth for Students: Environmental Education for Teens in Los Angeles County

2016 Winners

The 2016 Streets to the Sea Challenge invited Los Angeles County students to share a water-wise solution with their community. Students observed their campus watershed with a critical eye to look for excessive water flows, pollution hot spots, and ways the community can take action to prevent water pollution. Rising to the challenge, eleven teams created advocacy campaigns to teach their communities how to crack the water pollution problem!
