Through the Common Ground program students will learn compassionate land management skills at the Crane Trust Nature Center. These students will be removing invasive young eastern red cedar trees from native prairie habitat, they will extend the present hiking trail system by developing a new trail and they will be creating a new viewing blind where they and the public can observe sandhill cranes and other wildlife along the Platte River.

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. Students would be responsible for all of the work....from researching designs, what type of wood will be needed, to the actual construction of the work tables!

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.

With a $200 Roots and Shoots mini-grant, we will send 5 girls (age minimum is 13, so only a few of our members qualify) to a Job Shadowing class at Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, CA. The choices include Veterinary Medicine, Mammalogy, Marine Biology, and others. This unique program is consistent with the goals of both Roots and Shoots, in its environmental impact, as well as our group, MESSAGE, in advocating the importance of STEM fields for females.

This year, we have been studying how a single change to an ecosystem can disrupt the entire food web. We became very concerned when we learned that bee populations were declining around the world because without bees, plants don't get pollinated! Our grade level has decided to build a bee sanctuary at our school that will cater to mason bees, which are safe bees, but also good pollinators. Our contribution to the bee sanctuary will be to design and build bee "baths" where bees can get water. We will also include solar powered water pumps in our fountains because we know that stagnant water can be a breeding ground for mosquitoes, which we are trying to avoid.
