Our project will utilize unused land next to our school garden to plant native plants in our new pollinator garden. Our garden will both educate our community about plants native to colorado and provide habitat for species like birds, butterflies and bees who are critical to our environment.

Our project will take 4-6 months. We will start native plants from seeds, which, when established, will be used by TreePeople in their EcoTours and Mountain Restoration programs.

Our project will provide a peaceful garden area for students, family members, and staff to meditate while being in nature. The garden will have benches, flowers, stones, and other various plants. I hope for this project is for the garden to also be National Wildlife Habitat Certified.

Holistic learning tools and experiential educational methods are invested in our work. We invite people and groups of every age and walk of life to participate in workshops, trainings, retreats, volunteering schemes, outreach programmes, festivals, community gatherings and experience the power and inspiration of living in Unity with the Self, Nature and co-humans attuned to the truth, joy and generosity. "Korogonas Ark" constitutes an initiative which listens to the call of our era and responds to it: low eco-print, plant-based whole-food, empathy, inner peace, self-knowledge techniques, respect to every manifestation of life upon mother Earth, peaceful activism, community building (singing, circles, action, education, communication). Please join our FB group page "Korogonas Ark"
We are trying to grab important people attentions. We are planning to volunteer at http://www.massaudubon.org/get-outdoors/wildlife-sanctuaries/wellfleet-bay . If you are interested the massaudubon goes and rescues turtles that are being blown the wrong direction and some of the turtles are endangered. Please help save ENDANGERED SPECIES.

I know this won't be easy, so I must educate myself well on the habits of wolves and facts about them. I will have to expose myself to other sanctuaries and facilities (even if I do not agree with how they go about things) to gain insight on what it's like to care for them. Reaching out to zoos and organizations with handfuls of questions about these beautiful creatures is at the top of my list and hopefully by the end of February 2017 I will have all of the information I need on them. The next step is to learn about the laws (such as zoning, taxation (aka filing as a nonprofit), and safety) and researching attorneys I can come in contact with who will help me should anything go wrong. Then I will reach out to veterinarians, even try to meet with some to gain insight on what to do in x-y-z situations. Once I settle on property I will look more seriously in a handful of vets that will aid me. Next is looking at property (once I calculate how much land I need). When I have an idea of the size of land I need, I will need to find land that is somewhat close to a city yet far enough away. I will most likely have to hire a realtor to help me with this as Google searches will make it a lot harder. Finally, I will have to build a large barn. This would be more for housing sick/hurt animals and a place to put an office. I imagine I will need a place to keep files, licenses and a computer while I'm there. This would also double as a storage area for any food/first aid. Obviously the real last step is finding out where to start getting these animals, as zoos would be my first guess yet I'm sure there are hundreds of more places I could get them from. This will probably be the last part of my research as it's less complicated than any other step. I am also going to need money (and lots of it) to start up this project. I imagine myself starting up a GoFundMe page for a lot of it. I have many other plans to gain income as well, however. I hope that by doing this I could save many animals and maybe one day set some free back into the wild. I want it to become normal for them to be roaming around this great big continent!

We will plant many butterfly and bird-friendly plants (mostly flowers and hopefully some that attract our native monarchs!) and create a sitting area as well as artwork and a peace pole showing the community that this is a quiet area for personal reflection. Many birds visit our garden when it is just me but when students (who can make a little more noise come) many of the birds and butterflies leave so we are hoping to have the back park be a silent area that will attract birds and butterflies all throuhgt the day.
