STUDENTS OF ESCUELA POPULAR CONNECT WITH NATURE
Our site, at the confluence of two waterways in Guadalupe River Park and Gardens, was just a short walk from Escuela Popular. Yet the site was a new discovery for all the students of this inner-city charter school.

In 2008, I partnered with Wild Zones and Escuela Popular again, working in another San Jose park.
Zach introduced himself and offered simple instructions: "explore, discover, create, find your power." His words were translated into Spanish by Escuela Popular Principal Alba Lucia Diaz (right of Zach in photo).
For our closing circle, we all held connected branches and spoke of our experiences.
