Olympic High School: Heal the Bay Photo Essay

This year our photography class worked in collaboration with Heal the Bay. Students developed their photography and story-telling skills, using their cameras to more deeply delve into the issues they were learning, and to share those ideas with others through their photography. Students gained an understanding of the environmental impacts of the storm drain system, the role of trash, plastic, and other pollutants’ on water quality, as well as preservation and prevention in their local environment. This photo essay includes text and photos by Britany, Carlos, David, James, Johan, Juan, Sophie, and Zarah.
