Gonzales Youth Guardians visit Monterey Bay Aquarium – Salinas Valley Tribune

GONZALES – Gonzales Youth Guardians explored the wonders of the ocean during a recent visit to the Monterey Bay Aquarium in Monterey.

A total of 18 youth and four adults attended the April 30 field trip, which was funded through the City of Gonzales ’Measure K grant program.

Last month’s tour was the last in a series of free trips for area youth, who earlier this year also visited Top Golf in San Jose, the Point Lobos State Nature Reserve near Carmel-by-the-Sea, a Redwood Outdoor Laser Tag in Koinonia. Conference Grounds in Watsonville and a Santa Cruz Warriors basketball game at the Chase Center in San Francisco.

Transportation and lunch were provided free of charge during field trips.

“There is a growing population of single mothers in our Gonzales community, as well as essential field workers, who do not have the time or finances to take their children / youth on a field trip,” said Jean Salcido, president of Gonzales Youth Guardians.

Salcido noted the need for more free activities, such as field trips, for local youth.

“In an effort to enrich their lives, we would like to see more free activities for all children, so that everyone can stay active and enjoy their youth,” he said.

Gonzales Youth Guardians, which began in 2015, is an intergenerational organization that serves children, youth, and the elderly in the Gonzales community.
