My goal is to pick up at least 100 pieces of trash/plastic bags! If I can, I will create a group to help, but this will mostly be a single person project. One animal will be saved per piece of trash/plastic bag. So, 100 animals will be saved during this project to live on and reproduce to replenish their species. I plan to tell friends, family members, and educators about my project. Ideally, when adults learn about my project they will organize a group of children/students to do a similar project. So, younger generations can grow up and be influenced to create their OWN community projects to save whatever they believe in.

The main goals are: To create a project board including similar information to my power-point, and a sign-up sheet for local kids to join my project! I also hope to reach at least 100 people. Young adults will be able to come to my stand and learn about the importance of taking care of the Earth. The word will spread through my community as I present my project board at local events around my town. Though, if my project starts to take off, I will probably expand beyond my community in order to reach a larger group of children. In order to make an even greater impact, in order to save everything I, and all nature lovers, care about.

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.

The main goals are: to create a power-point that I will present to students at local schools, and to reach at least 100 people.

The target demographic is women in their freshman and sophomore years of high school when they are starting to consider the possibility of college and potential career paths. Our program will give a group of 5-10 girls the opportunity to acquire hands on experience working in a wildlife rescue. They will come in once or twice a month to build skills in animal husbandry and enrichment, learn about the zoological field and be guided through the mentorship of female animal curators at the Rescue. The girls will also work on a scientific project in which they will be instructed to study a specific animal and devise a suitable enrichment activity. For example, a puzzle with food rewards for monkeys. They then can create a report or presentation for science classes, or science fairs, etc. In addition to career development, our program will provide a therapeutic outlet to girls who may have difficulties at home, or in their communities. Working with animals and spending time in nature has been proven to reduce stress, aid in depression, and boost mood. This experience will help these girls to develop team-working skills, encourage female empowerment, become environmentally conscious and moreover, get them focused and inspired for their future.
