This project will take place during lunch at our school and will invite a guest speaker from Poison Free Malibu to present a lecture on Anticoagulant Rodenticides and its impact on our community. I will set up a date and time to accommodate the guest and keep in touch until the event day. Before the event, I must make sure to have access to the projector equipment for the lecture and make sure to offer community service hours to bring in a big attendance.

1.Students will work with the school community as well as the community to create a reflection garden. We have a raised bed garden which was started last year and would like to be able to incorporate a place where students can sit and reflect and find a peaceful place. We would accomplish by researching about reflection gardens, decide on a design and search for community resources and resources already available to us through the doe. In addition, I have registered for a class to teach educators how to implement and fund garden projects. ( New York Botanical Gardens , gardening 101 2/19- 2/25). 2. If students committ to decreasing plastic bags used in their community , they will create a public service challenge message to use less bags, design, sell and educate students, teachers and parents to use reusable bags.

This is a multi-pronged project which is part of a service learning component that all 9th grade students at Foshay Learning Center take part in. For this project students are doing several things: One group of students is creating fliers to share with the community about the dangers of leaving pets in hot cars. They will be distributing these on cars parked in parking lots in the neighborhood. Another group of students is selling lemonade and homemade healthy dog treats to raise money for the local shelter and a third group is creating an education campaign to "adopt not shop" for pets. They will be making presentations to other classes at Foshay. The last part of the project the students will each paint a 3x3 tile to represent the work they did in the community. Including the other community service projects we will be doing, there will be over 200 tiles representing over 6000 hours of community service done by the class of 2020.

For our project we will work with the Green Mountain Falls Trails Committee buy and install at least one bear-proof trash can. We will also create student signs to educate and encourage people to pick up after their dogs. This signs will be installed along the trail. Lastly, we will design and build boxes for dog bags. Here people can repurpose plastic bags and people who do not have a bag with them will have a way to clean up after their dog.

As a 4H group located in New York we strive to constantly look at ways we can assist our community. We have chosen to assist our local animal shelter in making improvements to their facility so that it is more efficient, adopter friendly and pet friendly. The facility is in dire need of turn out areas for the dogs and after meeting with the facility director we have decided that a great project for our 4H would be to build a new Puppy Corral for the shelter. The shelter facility has fallen on hard times and is in need of some improvements. As a 501C3 Non Profit group, they rely strictly on the graciousness of the community to donate time and money in order to improve the facilities. As a 4H program that has strong roots in animal science and a very strong dog focus we feel that it is a great opportunity for us to give back to our community as well as to the many animals that through no fault of their own have become shelter residents. We are proposing to build a Puppy Corral where the puppies taken in by the shelter would have room to exercise and socialize. The Corral also gives adopters the opportunity to view how the puppies interact with other dogs and is also a much more pleasant way for the public to view possible dogs they are interested in adopting, as opposed to kennels. Currently, the Corral is old and not secure. The wood is rotted and the shelter is constantly fixing the fencing when it really should be completely replaced. The basic plan for this proposal is to spend 1-2 days at the shelter with a group of 4H youth. We will volunteer our time to pound fence posts, string wire mesh, paint boards and also create a new sign for the structure. Youth will learn the benefits of hard work, compassion, ethical values and principles of responsibility. For this campaign, the Oneida County 4H program will match and/or exceed the $200 that the Roots and Shoots mini grant will provide in order to complete the campaign. In order to gauge the success of this campaign before and after photo's will be taken,4H will conduct follow ups on the number of adoptions that the shelter sees as well as gather testimonials from the public and staff of the shelter to showcase the project's success.

My project will raise money for local animal shelters. We are starting small and will slowly expand. We will have fundraisers. A blog and You-tube page is being set up. The blog is called "Pinky's Puppy Blog." Our beginning goal is to provide better living conditions in shelters, since getting all animals a family will be harder to reach.
