I will only have one day in the classroom with these students so we will need to work quickly! My idea is to use the melody of a popular song that everyone knows and change the lyrics - I will have some recording equipment with me so by the end of my time with them we should be able to make some recordings. Then I will complete the song and send it back to the class so they can share it with their community!

After surveying problems on our campus, it was decided by the students that we needed to address the fact that all water from rains was being directed to a nearby wash were the water was then lost to the ocean. Additionally, we decided that the campus needed some beautification. It was determined that we could meet both goals with this project.

We will focus on both learning and action in our group events this year. The learning component will include (1) consumption, waste, and reduce/reuse/recycle, (2) local food production and soil health, and (3) regional watershed protection and conservation. The action component will include (1) neighborhood debris clean-up and recycling, and (2) regional clean-up and conservation on learning trips to area ecosystems.

Students to create a design by mapping a selected site for a drought tolerant garden. Students will work in groups to draw/sketch the selected area for the drought tolerant garden. The mapping will assist in the planting stage.

We will clear the property of brush and overgrowth, remove non-native plants, plant native species, clean-up the beachfront, and restore the dunes to their natural state. On an ongoing basis, we will monitor the quality of the water and the conditions on the beach, and report our findings to the Alliance for the Great Lakes.

The H2Origami campaign was set in motion May 2011 when, following a viewing of the movie Tapped, Resources for Health Roots & Shoots youth leaders learned of Nestlé’s plan to bottle water from the Gorge and sell it to consumers at a 1500% profit. After hosting a guest talk to learn more about the issue from Food and Water Watch’s Julia DeGraw, group members began folding origami embellished with water protection messages to ask Governor Kitzhaber to put a halt to Nestlé’s plan. The origami represents Gorge wildlife that would be negatively impacted by the bottling plant, as well as drinking cups signifying the importance and simplicity of taking back the tap by choosing reusable drinking vessels over plastic bottles. RFH Roots & Shoots youth have used the project to raise awareness about Nestlé’s efforts to bottle the Gorge with outreach events at the Beaverton Library, Whole Foods Tanasbourne, Portland VegFest, and the Pacific Northwest Roots & Shoots Summit with Dr. Jane Goodall. Using craft paper wall murals to display the outspoken paper wildlife, they captivated audiences by teaching citizens of all ages to make H2Origami to contribute to the displays. The group anticipates more local campaigning ahead following the Oregon Water Resources Department’s February 29th approval of two of the three necessary OWRD permits for the Nestle Water Bottling Plant.

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.

Here are some basic things we can do to help the environment: Not littering does the same thing as picking litter up; just not littering saves more of your own energy than picking it up. Saving water in the sink and shower reduces the load on sewer clean age plants, which pollute the air. Turning lights off can also help, as long as you don't turn them on, then off, then on again, because that wastes even more energy. We can make a positive difference if we all act to save the beauty and nature of the earth.
