Mrs. Smith's Biology classes would like to reduce water use and storm drain pollution. We will excavate the lawn, lay down weed barrier that still allow water to pass through and put 3 inches of decorative rock on top. We will aerate the soil for better drainage, add top soil to certain areas to promote growth of plant native plants that will attract bees for pollinating. Our community is rich with almond, plum and peach trees which require pollinators.

We are starting a 2 week environmental leadership summer program for teens in North Florida. They will explore North Florida's wild places- from our springs to our swamps- on fun educational adventures, restoring them by working alongside the Alachua Conservation Trust NGO on hands-on conservation projects from planting longleaf pine trees to maintaining nature trails, and become leaders for them through workshops on leadership and careers in the environment. It will be affordable and aimed towards students from a wide range of backgrounds. See our website and apply at: https://www.walkforwildflorida.org/young-leaders-for-wild-florida

Our project is all about action! Students will be working together with people that are master gardeners and people that are knowledgeable about the Chesapeake Bay watershed in seeking guidance on how our part of the frog area helps contribute towards the Chesapeake Bay. Our lessons will be shared directly with the classroom Earth Science teachers in Earth Science grade 6, which will, in turn, be passed on to the students and be shared in a meaningful, relevant, real-world manner.

My students and I would work with our Technology/Construction staff in the design and construction of two wooden work tables that would be built between three trees.

Roots & Shoots at CNU will work with the Newport News Master Gardner's to plan and plant a new riparian buffer at Causey's Mill on the edge of Lake Maury. School-groups and community members will be invited to help with the project to raise awareness of runoff problems. Signs will be posted on the property so all visitors will be able to learn about the riparian buffer, and how riparian buffers can be created on their own properties.
