One of the service learning activities I've been a part of was participating as the leader for storm drain stenciling in Pacific Grove. A group of about 20 middle school children from the Monterey Peninsula were divided into 4 groups in order to go stencil certain sections of the city of PG. I was in charge of one of these groups along with other adult mentors. This was in collaboration with the Monterey Bay Aquarium (MBA) from which these kids were associated with through a club membership. I felt the most successful part of this experience was the public education and public involvement components of this program. I felt these children have an increased awareness and understanding of storm water pollution prevention issues through participating in this event. Educating an audience, specifically children, enhanced my understanding of opportunities for promoting environmental and ecological justice in the real world.
