Riley and I have decided to host a river cleanup with the help of a friend of Mrs. Judah’s; Stephanie Bastianon. Once she responds we hope that our classmates, families, and the community will show up to make our beautiful Petaluma gorgeous.

With a $200 Roots and Shoots mini-grant, we will send 5 girls (age minimum is 13, so only a few of our members qualify) to a Job Shadowing class at Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, CA. The choices include Veterinary Medicine, Mammalogy, Marine Biology, and others. This unique program is consistent with the goals of both Roots and Shoots, in its environmental impact, as well as our group, MESSAGE, in advocating the importance of STEM fields for females.

We will create spaces for native plants, edible plants, and maintain/beautify existing plants and trees. We intend to share these spaces with the community and create an environment in which students, families, and extended families/community members can enjoy the spaces and benefit from what is grown in the Caroldale Community Garden.

Our goal at MBES is to feed the hungry of Oconee County! Our school has an overarching theme of sustainability, and our third grade is in charge of "feeding" the garden with nutritious compost. We are trying to get all of our school involved in that process so that we can create an efficient process to compost with materials that we use everyday.

This year, we have been studying how a single change to an ecosystem can disrupt the entire food web. We became very concerned when we learned that bee populations were declining around the world because without bees, plants don't get pollinated! Our grade level has decided to build a bee sanctuary at our school that will cater to mason bees, which are safe bees, but also good pollinators. Our contribution to the bee sanctuary will be to design and build bee "baths" where bees can get water. We will also include solar powered water pumps in our fountains because we know that stagnant water can be a breeding ground for mosquitoes, which we are trying to avoid.

Our project will show how to lessen your ecological footprint by doing things such as reducing the use of plastic water bottles.
