The Puerto Rico Climate Change Conference:
The San Juan Bay Estuary Program said “present” in the Call to Action led in the PRCCC celebrated in November 17th through the 20th. We also distributed our newly-printed Citizen’s Guides to Climate Change in Puerto Rico, and received a shout-out from EPA Region 2 administrator Judith Enck while she was giving her keynote.

VISTA meeting with community leader in Capetillo:
Our VISTA Volunteers began their arrangements with community leader Ángel “Gelo” Gevárez to find economic opportunities based on the ecological resources available to the community of Capetillo. The meeting took place Monday, November 17th and it’s part of the group's initiative to eradicate poverty in communities located within the estuary watershed.
Gelo and the community have built an urban garden near the Juan Méndez creek, which has been channeled and flows through the community.
