2018 WATCH Recruitment flyer AHS

What Is Watch?

WATCH is a year-long program consisting of two parts:

  1. A two-week Summer Program BEFORE taking the class.
    During the summer you’ll explore the Pajaro River Watershed, from the mountains to the dunes. We’ll hike, boogie board and more while meeting local scientists, learning about local conservation issues and restoring habitats.
  2. An Honors Laboratory Science Class during the academic school year.
    During the school year, you’ll use what you learned in the summer to design your own outdoor environmental science project and create positive impacts in your community.

Students who complete the WATCH program earn:

  1. Honors Laboratory Class Credit
  2. Community Service Hours
  3. Eligibility for a Scholarship up to $1,000!
