    This week I got to explore and learn more about the San Dieguito watershed in San Diego, CA with fellow 1% for the Planet environmental partners San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy and Wildcoast. Did you know that wetlands are superheroes at storing carbon? I encourage you to spend a few minutes learning about "blue carbon" and the wetland ecosystems nearest to your home!
