By planting tree we hope to help the human and animal community as well as the environment. By planting trees we provide shade, air and beautification of the landscape for the human community. These trees will be home to native birds such as the Screech Owl, Northern Flicker, Osprey, Bald Eagle. For the environment it improves the quality of the air we breath. We plan on planting trees and Girls And Boys Club, Girls Inc., And possibly Boyd Hill Preserve.

Our small group has offered our time every other Saturday morning, during the Spring/Summer/Autumn for a few hours of our to work on the farm. Weeding, harvesting, & anything else they may need help with. We did it last year & can't wait to get started again! The farm will be having an Earth Day Pot luck as well... & it'll be so exciting to use some of this years beautiful produce to make a meal to share. :-)

One corner of the school yard will be dug up and filled with plants that will attract butterflies and insects. Another corner will be dug up and infused with aromatic plants. Interpretive signs will be hung to explain the nature of the specialized areas. A cob bench will be constructed with the help of our students, showing that chunks of demolition cement can be reused to make a new structure. A pump will be installed, connected to a small solar panel, making a fountain work. The water pressure will change when the angle of the panel is changed, an act that can be done by our students. Finally, a structure will be built for climbing, using recycled materials. We will be collaborating with university architecture students. This will give them an opportunity to research and construct a structure, as they follow their passion to become architects. We hope to have much of the project completed by the end of the school year. But it is more realistic to say that it will be completed by December 2015.

Saving the coquí means that future generations will be able to hear its song and maybe we can control diseases transmitted by mosquitoes in a better way . In order to achieve this, I want to educate people about the importance of protecting this little frog. Second, I am developing a harbouring device or "coquiario" in order to protect the coquí in our backyards. Third, I want to involve everyone I can to join me on this journey.

We plan to educate our community about why dog waste can be so harmful, and provide them with resources to make the process easier. We think that by reaching out to a local official and convincing them to spend time and resources on this issue, we can make the maximum impact. We have been researching the negative effects of dog waste, the occurrence of uncleaned up dog waste in our community, and how people can do this more effectively.
