I wish I could of gotten to do more experimentation with the resources I had.

MPA Watch Intern

June - September 2019 • Santa Monica, CA

What I liked

I got to spend time at the beach and learn what is like to work at a nonprofit environmental organization.

What I wish was different

Sometimes I had to drive during rush hour, which turned a 30 min ride into a 2-hour ride.

Volunteer

July 2018 • Redondo Beach, CA

What I liked

I liked working together with the community to do something good for the environment on a local scale.

What I wish was different

I wish we had a larger area of beach to cover. The small area did not cover very much compared to the amount of volunteers we had.

Advice

My advice is to volunteer often for these big organized events. They are fun, quick, and easy. Everything is supplied and explained thoroughly.
