We have placed 8 feeders of different colors in our courtyards. We made the feeders so that they are all identical except for the color. We have red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, white and black feeders. We have designed a plan to randomize where we place the feeders and change their position every two weeks. This is to be sure that it is actually the color of the feeder that is attracting the birds not the location. All feeders are filled with the same food. We have bird cameras focused on the feeders to make sure that we are getting all of the birds that visit our feeders. We only count the bird if we can tell it ate out of the specific colored feeder.
We will plant fresh herbs (basil, thyme, mint, dill, marjoram, oregano, fennel, etc) amongst the already established trees in the Wellness Community Garden at John C. Fremont HS.
The garden project will help the nature.My roots and shoots club and I will plant trees and plants where there are barely any trees or plants.We are doing this because we do not want people to over populate the wildlife.
Our project will complete the three aforementioned goals in the next six weeks and through to the end of the plant life cycle of the corn and sunflowers to be planted.
Prior to our winter break, we asked school families to bring back any toiletries from hotels that they were traveling to, and to purchase underwear for children and women. We collected them between January, when our school started back, and mid-February. We delivered them to the cafe that the safe houses run.
We will start by advertising for this food drive in our school newsletter, posters, and by visiting each classroom. Then, we will have children bring non-perishable foods to their classes. We are aware that not many people are motivated to donate food, so we will host a pizza party for the class that has the most weight of food per student. At the end of the month, we will collect and weigh the food to determine the winner and deliver the food to the local orphanages.
In order to collect blankets I will ask people I know to donate yarn, full blankets or crochet/knit 8 inch squares. I will use the yarn and squares to put together blankets while making my own.
Plant wild flowers that are neonicotinoids free saving the bees. neonicotinoid is what kills bees. It poisons them and spreds easily and stays in plants seeds and stays forever.
On Friday, March 20, 2015 various schools in Puerto Rico will open their doors to educators, from different organizations who love and care for animals. The educators will teach children about responsible pet citizenship and how we can stop the abuse and neglect. I was told that through education we can change our people's mind so that they will know how important it's to care and help. Children will be educated about, sterilization, castration, adoption, abuse and neglect and general pet ownership. The children will take a pledge on that day to be in charge of the change and to hold adults responsible. The children will wear animal ears, dogs, cats, horses and pig ears all one with the animals. We will also wear purple shirts in solidarity with the animals who have no voice. Schools that have volunteered to participate will hold food and newspaper drives to give to the many shelters who have rescued animals. On that same day a short educational video for children will be launched at the website and Facebook pages of the many organizations who have decided to participate educating. We want to reach at least 3,000 children on one day, we are recruiting volunteers to go out and teach visiting the schools on this day. The number of volunteers will determine our final reach and impact. If you want to help us as an educator/volunteer or if you want your school to participate let us know by sending an email to email@example.com Thanks in advance for your help! Isabella Rivera
