DARIEN — On a cool, foggy morning in June, middle schoolers from Trumbull put on waders and life vests on the shore of Cove Island in Stamford in preparation to delve into the cold water of Holly Pond to catch sea creatures with nets. Among the preteens were two Darien High School seniors, Alex Preston and Brooke Dirvin, putting on gear themselves and helping the students find life vests that fit.
The two are part of a group of four Darien seniors spending their final weeks of school, from May 15 to June 13, working as interns for SoundWaters, a Stamford-based environmental education organization.
