My wish is to use raise money to teach my peers about the wetlands.

We will research various types of homemade bird feeders and make drawings of the options that we think we should consider making, writing down every possible material and supply that would be needed for each one as we sketch it out. After about 15 to 20 minutes everyone should have at least one main building they identified on the campus sketched out, and at that point we are going to call ourselves to a stopping place and just sit for a bit while we wait for everyone to finish.

We have contracted with Shred Nations for secured document shredding and recycling. We have contracted with Green Sheen for recycling latex paint. We have organized with the GMSN to have various booths onsite. And we have made all of the arrangements with the school to use the parking lot.

Children in our Title One School have little time outside and very few opportunities to interact with nature. We will collect a team of volunteers (teachers, administrators, students and families) to clean out the trash, weed and mow, purchase moveable parts to encourage creative play, purchase and post materials to enhance knowledge of nature, including; trees, plants, bugs, animals and birds. We will create rules and policy regarding upkeep, including; weeding, bird feeders, and rules respecting all living things. We will install trash and recycling containers, purchase a rain barrel to reuse water, we will secure a donors choose to purchase the materials to build a small fish pond and will include the person who does gardening in the city to help with the organic garden and its upkeep.

When ever we are at the beach I am going to get my family to collect garbage and remove it from the beach

We hope to turn the space into an environmentally, educationally and community friendly space by removing all the weeds and replanting with hardy, annual plants that will attract wildlife. We will also put in area where insects, bugs and other animals will be able to live. We will revitalise the pond area by adding new plants and a rockery, helping the ponds wildlife. We are going to be adding a living willow tunnel. We are creating a wild flower meadow and orchard on the field. We have already planted fruit and vegetables in the raised bed on the playground. Fortunately, we have a very supportive FOLKs team who are backing the project 100%. We have organised parent working party days on a number of Saturday's during the year. We have already heavily weeded the area, removing the brambles and ivy. The next major part of the project is more groundworks; digging out the clay soil, adding weed suppressant materials, new top soil, compost and bark. We will be using recycled tyres and other materials to create flower beds where there will be different 'zones'; colour, smell and texture and we will be adding a taste zone, too. On the field we are developing the hedge and copse area with saplings that have been provided by the Woodland Trust. We are also creating a meadow area by digging 1x1m square and freely sowing wildflower seeds. This will be developed over the next few years.

The goal is to create fundraising events for the Jane Goodall Institute, power-points for teachers to use to educate their students, and to tell at least 100 people about my project so more people can be aware of its goal! I will mostly spread the word through family, friends, and the local schools in my area. Though, if my project starts to take off, I will probably go online in order to reach a larger group of people. To make an even greater impact, in order to save everything I, and all nature lovers, care about.

The Oakley Park Roots & Shoots leaders will research what plants are good for our zone, research a healthy habitat for our animal visitors and research the benefits of learning outdoors. We will then implement our findings by planting new plants, building a heathy habitat for our mother duck and other animals and last we will educate our school on the importance of outdoor class time.

The grandchildren (now ages 4 and 6) help to choose plants, and they help to plant and care for them. They have selected fruit trees to grow and have specified which butterflies to try to attract to the garden. They help to water and to weed and to fill the bird-feeder.
