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.

Our educational campaign will use Facebook, a social network that connects people of all ages. We will provide general and specific information about waterfowl alongside other content that will quack you up. In the long-term, we will petition to have signage changed in Ottawa, Ontario to be more informative and attention-grabbing.

In 2013, the Teen’s main job at the Sacramento Zoo is to work public education stations to teach visitors about wildlife conservation. In addition to working public education stations teens will volunteer at several zoo events, including; Museum Day, Earth Fest, Zoo Zoom, Where the Wild Kids Are, Summer Camp, Family Overnight Safari’s, Twilight Thursdays, Ice Cream Safari, Boo at the Zoo, and Holiday Magic. In addition to working zoo events, the teens organize, create, and implement the I Heart Sacramento Zoo enrichment event. In 2013, nearly 3,000 visitors attended I Heart Sacramento Zoo. In addition to general zoo admission, visitors get to see the animals enjoy all of the teen made enrichment and listen to the teens give enrichment talks at 13 different animal exhibits.

Go to a variety of wildlife habitats, identify wildlife by sound, sight, and scent. Collect fishing line from recycle bins and recycle it. Test pond and stream water to see extent of pollution. Check on condition turtle rafts and replace as necessary. Determine if native turtles re using it or invasive turtles.

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.
