To create the pollinator garden, we must first clean up the project site, a courtyard "reading garden" that is currently in disarray. University students will hold a series of educational lessons and activities in the kindergarten class at Pizzo Elementary, to explain the importance of pollinators and give the students a sense of ownership of their project. During one such activity, we will help the students choose plants that will be attractive to many native pollinators in Florida. In early spring, we will have a planting day and celebration with the students as we plant the garden together. Hands-on educational activities both in the classroom and more importantly in the garden will continue once the garden has been established. We have obtained funding from USF's College of Arts & Sciences, and intend to complete the creation of the pollinator garden in Spring 2015.

Our Roots & Shoots groups coordinates an annual moth night each year. In 2013, we gathered in our backyard. In 2014, we collaborated with the National Park Service and gathered on the beach within the park boundaries. We will continue to take part each year and in doing so increase awareness and appreciation for these nocturnal pollinators.

Reduce or stop using products that have palm oil in them like some foods, cooking oil, hair products, etc. You can still eat foods and use hair products but check in the ingredients and make sure it does not have palm oil in the product.

Our project will restore the native plant communities in a local open space to create habitat for animals and a beautiful place for people to enjoy. We have partnered with Butterfly Pavilion and the City of Broomfield to complete this restoration project, which will be on going for multiple years.

Students will be adopting the median out front of our school to develop a native plant garden and habitat for bees. This will be a learning space for the school and local community serving to engage them in experiencing the advantages of native species and the need for bee habitats.

To create a garden that provides a peaceful place for teachers to retreat to and diverse plants for creatures to live in. The large conference table will also be a place for Roots & Shoots members to meet. We will get approval from our principal to take on this project, get donations of succulents, prep the garden area, and grow a garden over a 3-month period.

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.

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.

My project will be started by taking cuttings of native plants already present in my neighborhood, such as Wild Tamarind, Gumbo Limbo, and Fire Bush. I will then plant them around my school with the help of the rest of Ecology Club. I will add to our thriving native garden and create a "mini-forest" that will help increment the amounts of native insects, birds, and other small animals.

I will remove buck thorn, which is one of the most aggressive invasive species in my region. Around the natural pond in the preserve there are willows and other noninvasive species that are being smothered by the buck thorn. Almost five years ago a tornado traveled directly through the land and killed many of the pine trees, I will work to remove the dead and fallen trees to restore the peaceful serenity in the preserve.
