Using our Ecology Club's funds and grants from several foundations, we will draft a design plan and budget. Once approved by local administrators, we will employ the help of over 50 BHS Ecology Club members to bring the garden project into reality. Yearly funds raised by the Eco Club would be used to maintain the garden and the compost bin.

Through the leadership of our member students and through funding, we will purchase gardening tools, mulch and plant seeds to prepare the soil, arrange the planting beds and water our gardens. In addition, students will conduct school-wide workshops to develop consciousness and awareness of water usage, eco-friendly flora and education on native plants of our state. Eventual and follow-up projects that build upon the native-plant garden will involve tree planting with the aim of providing shade areas throughout school and that will cool our concrete-covered campus while aiding in harvesting the little precipitation we get.

This year, we will be taking a trip to the Hansen's Agricultural Center to visit with their experts to see what they are doing to attract pollinators. After this trip, we will be 1) researching and planting other types of native plant species in our class garden to not only continue to attract Monarch butterflies, but other types of butterflies; 2) teaching our first grade study buddies about plant and butterfly life cycles and planting with them seeds to nurture into seedlings to take home and plant; and 3) creating new information placards to display in our garden so that all students, staff, and parents who pass by our garden daily will learn about our garden - why it is important, what is happening in it, how it is changing to meet the needs of a variety of butterflies, and what they can do in their own home gardens to expand our care towards butterflies.

We will cut the asphalt next to our lunch area and build a rain garden on our parking lot campus to help mitigate flooding. The basin of our rain garden is a long swale that will also serve as access to the back of the garden. It will be covered in wood chips. We will use native plants wherever possible and select for seasonal appeal and habitat value. We will not use any pesticides or herbicides in our garden.

We received grants from the Inland Empire Resource Conservation District to plant 50 plants between two schools in the community. We successfully worked together to plant the drought tolerant and native plants in garden areas at Lugonia Elementary and Barbara Phelps County School.

Our project would impact the part of the beach that we cleaned, and will impact the sea life and birds in the area. This will also give a good example to the beach goers, so they can pick up their trash off the beach too. We planned a good day for our club to go and then publicized it with our school so we can have a lot of help.

This project will make our school more attractive to students and visitors. The drought tolerant plants will save resources (water). We will use the money to purchase the plants (and other planting materials) and the students will do the work of planting and caring for this area.

We hope to be accepted and receive funds to plant plants in a very public area near a very traveled part of our campus that needs some beautification. The students are prepared to work with our maintenance crew and do the planting themselves.

We will be taking a field trip to a local park, and will clean up all the trash and spread awareness. We also want to test the water to see of it is healthy and if not spread awareness.
