We are going to fill barren, compacted, nutrient deficient dirt with nutritious soil and native plants which will in turn attract native insects and birds, making our campus a more beautiful and healthy environment.

The 5 girls who proposed the plan to a teacher got a response from Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful and the Environmental Protection Commission. Our PTSO is helping to recruit volunteers. Our project will pull debris from the canal on Saturday, April 27th of 2019. We hope to get a "water goat" to catch further debris from traveling down stream from our location.

My project will be monthly Bay Trail cleanups with a coalition of Amelia Earhart Elementary School, Lincoln Middle School and Alameda High School students, as well as any community members who want to join. Every month, on low-tide days, we will walk to the Bay Trail with buckets, trash-grabbers, gloves, and a wagon. We shall proceed to pick up trash and debris for two hours. We will also weight all the trash we pick up and compile the data to send to the NOAA. My project will build fellowship between people of different backgrounds and help our students be protectors of our waters. Additionally, as there is a bird sanctuary right next to the Bay Trail, my project will protect its inhabitant by keeping the shared waters clean and sanitary for avian habitats.

This project will provide our school with a safe space for academic studies. We plan to do this by having students from the Latin department, and a few other teachers in the school collaborate together in an effort to restore the courtyard and pond.

We will plant 4-5 pollinator gardens around Lexington in public areas. These will be in places that the public can enjoy them, but they will be focused on providing natural and native environments for bees, other pollinators and butterflies. We will make the spaces between 3’x3’ and 10’x10’. We are working with experts at native plants to ensure that we have the right plants, and the right combination of plants for each season. We will place signs at each garden to explain to the public what we are doing and to make sure they are aware of the current struggles and habitat losses that bees and butterflies are going through. We will also make sure that these are pesticide free spaces, and try to educate others about the use of pesticides.

Last year, our teachers had a very difficult time sourcing milkweed plants that each 2nd grade class needed to feed their live monarchs. With this garden bed, we hope to grow the important milkweed plant, along with other pollinator friendly plants, right on school grounds. Some seedlings have already been planted in temporary containers but need to be transplanted into a garden in April. We have plans for an inexpensive, yet sturdy raised wood bed and will also need to purchase the soil and compost for the bed, which we hope to have finished by mid-late April.

The first step of the project is to trim all of the trees in the trail/park area and clear out all brush. The second step of the project is to install trash receptors in order to keep the area cleaner. The third step of the project is to install a drip irrigation system for the fourth step of the project, which is to plant Califonia native plants. The fifth step of the project is to hang owl boxes. The sixth step of the project is to install a bird bath to be a source of water for the species who will inhabit the area.

Our project will achieve our dreams of a healthier environment by educating people at the Oakland Zoo. We will focus on the negative effects plastics have on our oceans and what we can change about our daily lives in order to lessen those effects. As well, we will (like we've done in the past) organize more beach cleanups periodically throughout the year to get people from all over the community to be more involved. Beach cleanups are a great way of educating the public about plastic pollution and also gives people a chance to help out. These cleanups bring everyone together to make our world a better place! We have also created a fun station for our Teen Wild Guides to volunteer every weekend! We have teen volunteers who walk around the entire zoo and pick up trash that people leave behind. Trash can be very dangerous for the animals at our zoo and we don't want any of it to find its way into any of the exhibits. We collect a huge bag of trash every time we do this station! Not only does this make the zoo a more beautiful and natural environment, it also shows the visitors what they can do to help maintain the zoo's beauty and fun!

Our campaign is in support of a little-known local Park District facility called Keay Nature Learning Center. The park is underutilized by our community. The environment is mostly healthy, but there are a number of invasive plant species which impact the native landscape. Working with the Park District, our group will work to eradicate native plant species without damaging the environment and to make the Nature Center more attractive to animals and people alike. One idea we have is to build and paint birdhouses to donate to Nature Center. These may help to attract and house a wider variety of birds, and they have the added benefit of being pleasing to people. We hope that the publicity from this effort will draw attention - and visitors - to the Nature Center.

In our meadow, we will plant native plants which are used to our area's weather and rainfall. It's 50 feet long and about 33 feet wide, and will have a path to walk through the meadow. Then we will place signs to show the different plants and why the help, and signs teaching about the different pollinators, and why they are important.
