In October, we surveyed our campus several times and found it lacks variety of plants, birds, and other wildlife. We have identified 3 sites on our campus to convert into suitable habitat for plants and birds. We installed 3 raised-bed gardens. We will use our 3 new garden beds to cultivate flowers and plants that are native to Michigan or are suitable for our climate. Students led research will guide our planting decisions. Initially, community support will be necessary for our success. We will need to seek seasonal donations of flower seeds and other plants for our garden beds. Donated items will grow in our garden beds. Once plants are mature, they will be transplanted all around our campus in hopes that the new foliage and flowers will attract birds and other wildlife. After the first cycle or transplants, students will be taught to harvest seeds, split plants, and propagate new shoots. This winter we are making bird feeders from pinecones, peanut butter, and birdseeds. We will make more than 50 pinecone feeders and hang them from existing trees to help lure birds onto our campus. We will recycle heavy-duty plastic bottles and make birdhouses. Students will count the number of birds at feeders throughout the winter. After the first year, we hope to use our beds to grow flowers for fundraising. Our goal will be to use the money to make purchases that will further develop our garden and habitat sites.

Action Plan Overview: 1. Develop plans for the design of the garden *Completed: Students researched native species and designed garden space) 2. Ask permission and seek support *Completed: We have a space determined and have support from the district's buildings and grounds department and from the National Wildlife Federation's Pollinator Garden project. https://www.nwf.org/Garden-for-Wildlife/About/National-Initiatives/Plant-For-Pollinators 3. Collect seeds *Completed: We have collected native plant seeds from our school grounds. Other seeds will be provided by the NWF 4. Seek out additional funding *Completed: We have secured a grant from WPS for a hydroponics system---soon we will be raising our plants in our classroom from seed! 5. Raise plants through the winter and plant in the spring on a portion of the garden along a trail 6. In the main/larger area, we need to herbicide the entire area in August to prepare for the mass seed planting 7. In late September/early October NWF will come out and help us spread the seed as a classroom activity 8. In the spring, the seeds will grow and we will monitor the growth continually---maintenance on the garden will be annual mowing

It will make the Abilene Zoo a more beautiful place. We will take out most of the current plants in the existing garden and add newer, native butterfly friendly plants. Our hope is that more people will want to make their own butterfly gardens at home and we're helping them do that by creating interactive activities.

It has already inspired students and parents to think about plastic use. It has promoted much thought about the devastation and rubbish waste problem in our world. We wish to keep making our special bags and give them to people to help spread thought and the students good work.
