With the grant we will purchase birdfeeders and a trail cam to monitor feedings while we aren't able to observe. We will use the Cornell Lab Citizen Science Investigation to guide our work this year, but with the addition of the trail cam for nighttime observation. I believe citizen science is needed in our school, and is a powerful opportunity for students to connect nature with scientific research in a "real" way. We will also communicate with a group of students who live in the remote Siberian Yupik village of Savoonga, on St. Lawrence Island in Alaska, to learn how they use citizen science to learn about changes in their region. We plan to start with birds, but I hope students are able to draw connections between a healthy environment and productive habitats that support many types of life.
Our group is traveling to the San Xavier Co-op Farm to volunteer and learn about the farm's beneficiary, the O'odham Nation. We will be harvesting local produce and learning about farming methods as well as local and native foods. The store nearby sells the harvest and all the proceeds go back to the Nation. We will also receive education about the Tohono O'odham.

To raise the public's attention we want to make graffiti, paintings, exhibitions, performances and T-shirts. For students I would like to offer bird watching trips and educational programs. We would like to discuss and realize a sustainable project together with one community and find out how bird watching could be part of it. We will also do research online and real bird markets since their is a huge hype in Java for birds now especially rare and endangered ones are oppenly sold. As birdwatching is an important part, we will also go to some still conserved places to count and determine the bird species. We will connect with other birdwatchers, bird protecting communities like FLIGHT , BKSDA, AnimalFriendsYogya and BIONIC.
