We began the day walking through the new CIRENAS campus that is currently under construction. We learned about water sustainability and how CIRENAS plan to use contours and swales to collect rainwater and prevent erosion. We also prepared baggies full of dirt in order to plant trees tomorrow. All together we filled 620 bags, which beat the record that the previous school group set! After lunch we went to the Waterkeepers office in Satan Teresa, a popular surfing destination, to learn about water quality and quantity issues in the area. Afterwards, we headed to Playa Hermosa for surf lessons. Nearly everyone stood up on a surfboard and successfully rode a wave!
