This project will allow for more meaningful inquiry with students at the middle school level, as the plot is on school grounds and is quickly accessible from the classroom. It will also allow for a connection between the community and the school, as the plot is accessible to the public from the street, and will include signage as well as some common plants community members may already know. We will have a variety of seating available for the public and students to utilize to best fit their needs. There is already a young plot on the grounds, but the funds for seating, bird feeders, and bee hotels is yet to be secured. I have local experts and craftsman who are available for quality assurance of all tangible parts brought into this area.

The project will be sequential starting with school community, town, and then world. Learners will first learn what a community is and how they are a part of a larger group of people. Then taking what they know about their school community will apply towards their town. They will participate in a community mapping inventory to determine within the three areas: beautification, landscape, plants, and trees, and wildlife; how they can enhance the town they live in. Finally, after the mapping complete a project based on at least on of the three focuses. If possible connect with another second grade class to blog about their learning.

Our project is helping the homeless animals in the shelters. By attending animal shelter events, one can simply ask for donations during the event that can be given to the animal shelter foundation. We also had a school wide drive to collect blankets, pillows, milk bone treats, and dog bowls. By helping with this event, our members helped to "drain the kennel" and attempted to make every animals dream come true (to have a home).

Children in our Title One School have little time outside and very few opportunities to interact with nature. We will collect a team of volunteers (teachers, administrators, students and families) to clean out the trash, weed and mow, purchase moveable parts to encourage creative play, purchase and post materials to enhance knowledge of nature, including; trees, plants, bugs, animals and birds. We will create rules and policy regarding upkeep, including; weeding, bird feeders, and rules respecting all living things. We will install trash and recycling containers, purchase a rain barrel to reuse water, we will secure a donors choose to purchase the materials to build a small fish pond and will include the person who does gardening in the city to help with the organic garden and its upkeep.

The target demographic is women in their freshman and sophomore years of high school when they are starting to consider the possibility of college and potential career paths. Our program will give a group of 5-10 girls the opportunity to acquire hands on experience working in a wildlife rescue. They will come in once or twice a month to build skills in animal husbandry and enrichment, learn about the zoological field and be guided through the mentorship of female animal curators at the Rescue. The girls will also work on a scientific project in which they will be instructed to study a specific animal and devise a suitable enrichment activity. For example, a puzzle with food rewards for monkeys. They then can create a report or presentation for science classes, or science fairs, etc. In addition to career development, our program will provide a therapeutic outlet to girls who may have difficulties at home, or in their communities. Working with animals and spending time in nature has been proven to reduce stress, aid in depression, and boost mood. This experience will help these girls to develop team-working skills, encourage female empowerment, become environmentally conscious and moreover, get them focused and inspired for their future.
