Zach Pine Nature Sculpture - event Heading



In Partnership With
Wild Zones and Hooked on Nature
San Jose, CA; November 15, 2007

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.

For more photos, see the event photo gallery.

In 2008, I partnered with Wild Zones and Escuela Popular again, working in another San Jose park.

Zach introducing himself and the site

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).
