Since I started Gorilla Heroes officially in March 2018, I have been pied over 60 times to thank supporters who have donated money to gorilla conservation groups or bought Gorilla Heroes shirts. Now I hope to create a viral video campaign similar to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. In the kickoff video which will be posted on September 24, 2018, World Gorilla Day, My Family and I will all get pied, then nominate others to participate in the challenge

We will purchase beautiful flowers that attact butterflies and bees, at each child's home in a container. The children will take care of the flowers by nourishing them with water and plant food. Then they will wait for the butterflies and bees to appear!

Still in planning...but talking about adding hives, educating people on bees, planting more orchards or fruit trees and flowers.

We will start by introducing 4th-6th grade students to sustainable options which can be used in lieu of plastic and styrofoam products. NOTE: Many of these students have gone through the Kids for Positive Change program and are familiar with skipping the straw, using reusable straws, bags and bottles. We also will work with a community restaurant owner who actively composts, and teach students about the benefits of composting. We'd like to set up a composting station at school and continue our school recycling program. We will have students research sustainable and compostable products, like utensils made from corn and cups made from wheat and provide them with materials to "build" their own compostable products. A main focus will be raising awareness about plastic bag pollution and promoting the use of reusable bags. Much like our Classroom-Community Action Assignment: "The Last Plastic Straw Ashtabula Campaign," we will have students launch a similar campaign about plastic bags. Students will present at Ashtabula City Council and Board of Education meeting about zero waste and how to move toward making Ashtabula Area City Schools a Zero Waste / Sustainable School System!

I will have a lemonade stand in Mill Valley on Sunday 9/16 to raise money for wildlife preservation.

Our project is to continue picking up litter and encourage others to do the same. While cleaning up the city we shall list and describe all the different wildlife and show how the animals make our neighborhood a better place to live. Some form of presentation about the animals who share our neighborhood may help others choose to help keep our city litter free and help people appreciate the animals who share our living places.

I am going to create a team of people from my town. First, we are going to go door to door and ask people if they want to take action and save the bees. We will ask them to sign a petition saying they will not use harmful chemicals (pesticides, herbicides) on their property. We can also educate our neighbors about non-toxic methods to manage their yards. Second, we will go to town hall and ask to use public lands to plant bee gardens in the spring. A bee garden will include wildflowers, milk weed, bee homes, and a water bee bath with pebbles.

This project will allow for more meaningful inquiry with students at the middle school level, as the plot is on school grounds and is quickly accessible from the classroom. It will also allow for a connection between the community and the school, as the plot is accessible to the public from the street, and will include signage as well as some common plants community members may already know. We will have a variety of seating available for the public and students to utilize to best fit their needs. There is already a young plot on the grounds, but the funds for seating, bird feeders, and bee hotels is yet to be secured. I have local experts and craftsman who are available for quality assurance of all tangible parts brought into this area.

Students will visit the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge, and learn how to film and photograph in nature. They are going to research Colorado wildlife and educate the community through film, how it connects to global wildlife and conservation efforts.
