We will hand make cards with written facts and drawings (along with a kind message) to spread awareness about endangered animals and pollution and deliver them to a local hospital and nursing home to hopefully brighten people's day while also promoting green education.

We would like to target to collect 1000 KG worth of ring pull tabs, that will enable to help contribute in the making of 1300 pieces of prosthetic limbs, and these limbs are sent to Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia to helping those in need of a limb. Not only can we help the community but by donating we also help the wildlife, as an Elephant in Thailand who lost her limb in 2006,from a land mind has now gotten a prosthetic leg because of this campaign. Our students are getting their families, together along with local communities from the food and beverage industries to help them collect the ring pull tabs, even as far out as the North of Malaysia from Penang from connections their families have to spreading this goodwill cause.

Hopefully, the posters will be placed in areas for our school and community to see so that people can help us make our school campus and Tucson a better place to live. We want to help instill pride and get more people doing their part to do what is right for the community. We will begin our projects once we return from spring break. Rather than focus on just one area, the class wanted to break up into smaller groups to cover the following ideas: recycle/reuse/reduce, the hazards of littering, and the importance of planting and taking care of our desert vegetation.

We will write a creative story using BYTES Power Smarts characters to illustrate how multiple intelligences (Power Smarts) can be used to solve a wildlife problem and make this story available for free on the bytespowersmarts.com website, for free in the Teachers Pay Teachers open marketplace for educators, and for free to the Roots & Shoots member community.

We are inviting all of the families in our homsechool cooperative and the members of the Boys and Girls Club where we meet weekly to add to our Roots and Shoots "Making a Difference" chain. It is Roots and Shoots goal to do things that support our human community, the animal community and the environment. Each time anyone participates in an activity that accomplishes one of those goals we are going to invite them to add it to our chain. It is a good way to see how every individual makes a difference. We are going to display the completed chain at our showcase at the end of this semester.

In 2010, Resources for Health Roots & Shoots adopted Evergreen Park, a community space with play structures, open fields, and a small wooded trail system, for Arbor Day. Our first project as “park adopters” was planting flowers to beautify the park’s entrance, and for the next three years, we carried out a variety of park enhancement projects, including litter cleanup, light park maintenance, filling roles in community events, and the occasional blackberry removal. Although these early projects weren’t directly focused on the woods, we admired it as a gateway to the past, what the landscape must have looked like before the parking lots and high-density housing that now surround it. In 2013, our group agreed that the area of the park in the direst need of our help was that wooded area, as it was least utilized, and in turn, least maintained segment of the park. That month we shifted our efforts to be more focused and consistent in the woods. We also began to extend the participation of the events from our group to community members. During these events, we removed immense amounts of the invasive blackberry, redefined the entire trail system, removed litter, and re-vegetated the woods with native plants. As a result, many native plants independently regrew in place of the blackberry we removed, our re-vegetation efforts took root and helped shade out the blackberry, and the trails stand out from the surrounding foliage and debris! As of today, these projects continue in the woods of Evergreen Park.
