We plan on cleaning up the park first, using poop baggies and trash bags. Then we will add pooper scoopers and dogie bags to the front of the park so owners can clean up after their pets.

I was going to visit the place where the trashes are disposed, but I couldn't find one where I can go and look at. So, I changed my plan to pick up trahses around my neighborhood. After I pick up the trashes, I will show the picture of it to young kids and try to teach them about the importance of not throwing the trashes anywhere.

We will have the students meet with the owner and manager to discuss what important information needs to go on the material. We will meet as a group to discuss the layout and creative design on the material and sign. The Instructor will take the rough draft and make a beautiful and professional sign on Photoshop and we will use the grant to produce them :)

Our plan is to have 25 double truck loads of clean, white fill to make the footing safer for the horses and volunteers. We will have a bobcat to move the sand, and a compactor to aid in packing the sand down once it is leveled by the volunteers. We need volunteers to help us remove the stall mats, level the sand in the stalls and walkways.

This project will take place during lunch at our school and will invite a guest speaker from Poison Free Malibu to present a lecture on Anticoagulant Rodenticides and its impact on our community. I will set up a date and time to accommodate the guest and keep in touch until the event day. Before the event, I must make sure to have access to the projector equipment for the lecture and make sure to offer community service hours to bring in a big attendance.

1.Students will work with the school community as well as the community to create a reflection garden. We have a raised bed garden which was started last year and would like to be able to incorporate a place where students can sit and reflect and find a peaceful place. We would accomplish by researching about reflection gardens, decide on a design and search for community resources and resources already available to us through the doe. In addition, I have registered for a class to teach educators how to implement and fund garden projects. ( New York Botanical Gardens , gardening 101 2/19- 2/25). 2. If students committ to decreasing plastic bags used in their community , they will create a public service challenge message to use less bags, design, sell and educate students, teachers and parents to use reusable bags.
