This project will increase the amount of ground cover in a denuded area that is currently part of a larger park area. It is treated poorly because it looks like a waste land. We will be doing earthwork to create rainwater harvesting basins, planting native trees, grasses, and shrubs, removing invasive species, and creating an outdoor learning space.

Wildlife is abundant in my area but the numerous storms have driven them away so bringing back resources for them. The creation of food, water and shelter for the many bird and rodent population will increase the wildlife, helping propagate the indigenous plants.

We have a small pollinator garden. We see many bees and butterflies including monarchs! We would like to expand our garden by planting more habitat. We would like to make it more of an exhibit so that our visitors could learn about the pollinators and how to create their own gardens. And finally, we would like to use our garden for science by participating in a research project on milkweed.

We will collect mangrove seedlings, plant them in small containers. When they mature after several months we will plant them on the man mad and natural islands in our lagoon. We will need, soil, plant holders, and access to a boat.

The DMS Green Team will build a compost bin, begin collecting food waste from the cafeteria, place the food waste (along with dried leaves and grass) in the bin, work the piles of waste until it becomes compost, and then apply the compost to our vegetable and native plant gardens. Students will track the amount of food waste coming from the cafeteria to the compost bin, measure the volume and temperature during the composting process, then be a part of applying the compost to the gardens.

I will construct an informational kiosk with a plywood board on which relevant information can be posted using pressure treated pine wood and galvanized steel hardware.

We will start with a training session about what tools we will use to document the trees and how to determine what species they are and what condition they are in. Then we will go out and start documenting some of the trees.
