The project was carried out by Keystone College Eco Club members on Saturday, November 15th from 10:00-1:00. The trees were planted by a method called bare root planting for maximum efficiency. The project was carried out successfully.

Our project will increase the number of native plants on campus, increase the number of wildlife that use the plants, and educate fellow students, staff and community about the importance of going native in gardens and park ways. We will create a demonstration garden and signs and posters that exhibit how each plant contributes to the ecosystem, conserves water and prevents extinction.

Our project will remove invasive plants, plant native growth, maintain existing trails, and create new trails utilizing the Volunteen force from Zoo Atlanta. By doing so, Fernbank Forest, the last real undisturbed old-growth forest in Atlanta, will be reopened to the public and the community can again enjoy and revel in nature.

The project will consist of planting native plants in the garden beds around the campus. We have a lot of abandoned garden beds that are just dirt, and some that have grass. We have a terrible drought in California right now, and we would like to remove the grass, and plant edible native plants that will require less water than the grass. We would also like to plant some pollinator-attracting plants in those beds. The need is to replace water-thirsty grass areas, and dirt areas, with native plants that use a lot less water. The students learned about how soil needs nutrients to make it rich, and that those nutrients come from plants, so they want to plant native plants to use less water, and to enrich the soil. Also, they had a visit from a native plant nursery volunteer who told them about the need for pollinators to have nourishment so they want to provide a food source and habitats for pollinators. We have three community organizations who will consult with us, provide us plants at cost, and help us plant.

First we have to find a place for animals such as a shelter or a community center. Find a natural area in which we could plant trees and help our environment. Foster the right use of trash cans and recycling centers.

Job Descriptions that seem to fit: *Supervise, manage and perform work in conservation. *Demonstration of "crafts". We will let the city know that park rangers work in urban, suburban, and rural areas. We found out that to apply, applicants should "contact the appropriate office having jurisdiction over the area of interest to inquire about vacant positions" so we will contact the direction of city recreation, Todd McCoy.

We will pick up seeds to grow plants for pollinators from Mardell Jasnowski and Karen Hamburger from the Nebraska Nature Conservancy greenhouse. They said they have seeds in their freezer that need to be started now! We are going to help them with that project.

On Earth Day, we will join horticulturalist, Brad Foster, to clean up the city garden.

The idea consists of students and parents in our school getting together to plant. We first need to buy the trees then assign trees for each advisory or homeroom to plant. The goal is not only to plant trees but to inform and inspire other schools and kids to plant in their schools and houses. By are school doing a planting project surrounding schools can follow and add to the common goal of bettering the environment. Our school also belongs to a network and I believe that if we begin this project in LPS Hayward, LPS San Jose, Oakland and Richmond will follow. Students will also be informed of the benefits of tree planting and how it has a positive effect in preventing global warming. This project will not only beautify our school but create awareness and give students greener ideas to continue applying in their lives.
