Pebble Watch “covers” a hit at VLW


PWCoverVLW-adelheidThe Pebble Watch team attended Bristol Bay Native Corporation’s Village Leadership Workshop (VLW) last week, providing information about Pebble Watch publications and resources, and highlighting Pebble Watch’s Facebook page, which has nearly reached 10,000 “Likes.”

Pebble Watch conducted a drawing for prizes geared toward young scientists, including a microscope and a water quality testing kit. We also created custom digital Pebble Watch magazine covers featuring attendees such as Lucy Andrews and Adelheid Frost, pictured here.

Several VLW participants had fun posing in front of our “green screen,” with their custom cover produced on the spot. Did someone you know participate? You might see it posted on Facebook.

We asked attendees to take home this message: Pebble Watch is here for everybody in the region, no matter what “side” you are on. We offer fact-based information, not opinions, and we are here to help keep you informed about activities, schedules and science related to the potential development of the Pebble prospect.
