The first activity on the island was carrying out chores in garden; working on the compost to add carbon elements, taking note of all things reused by both CELP and nature, and preparing a snack straight from the garden. We played team building games, feeling challenged and accomplished at the end. Day two included all things ocean, snorkeling and kayaking. The water was so clear! We visited the microscope lab where we uncovered the world of invertebrates and mollusks. Finally, we ended our trip with a day hike reflecting on what we learned, our experiences, and our greater understanding of the importance our environment.
