Forests, Earthquakes, and Bios!
Forests, Earthquakes, and Bios!

This week we get to see Redwood Adventist Academy students featured on the news after an earthquake curiously leads to higher free-flowing water in Mark West Creek. We also get to know a few of the students at Pacific Union College and why they chose to go there.


Redwood Adventist Academy


Students featured on KTVU FOX2

Mark West Creek in Santa Rosa is flowing once again—not from rain, but from the ground beneath it. Earthquakes usually bring dread and damage. But the Santa Rosa quakes on September 14th also brought a watery surprise. 

Local television news featured the kindergartners as well as the first- and second-graders of Redwood Adventist Academy as they played and learned in Mark West Creek.  This creek is now a wonder of nature, made so by the magnitude 4+ earthquakes that rocked Santa Rosa.
