We planted Emperor Tulip bulbs, like others have done around the world. Because we live in zone 8, the protocol called for us to refrigerate our bulbs to ensure a proper wintering. We also chose to run an experiment with a second bed of bulb. These we planted November 1st. The other bed we planted January 10 (as the protocol asked for). We created journals to record observations as to when they emerged and when they bloomed. This data we reported to Journey North. It was interesting to find that the earlier planted bulbs (experiment bed) emerged first and bloomed first, but they did not look as healthy as the later planted bulbs. They were a bit twisted and stunted. The wintering of bulbs did make a difference!

Our project is helping the people understand the true beauty of what is around them. by setting up a table and helping our incoming 7th graders build bird feeders out of the school recycling, we are helping inform educated students about the needs of the environment. We also put out a plastic jar for donations to our club to help with next year's projects. By helping with this event, we are educating students about mother nature's requirements and about how we can help. Most of all, by helping our incoming 7th graders build bird feeders is a way to let them keep a mindful memory and feed the birds of the wild.

Our project will help the environment, while helping people acknowledge the importance of recycling. We will collect all the recycled bottles and empty them out. We will have two bags, one for plastic bottles and the other one for aluminum cans. The money collected will be used for our garden. We will clean up the garden space, fertilize the soil, plant vegetables and fuits, and water them. We will fix up our irrigation system and, at least once a week, check up on the garden.

Our project is helping the homeless animals in the shelters. By attending animal shelter events, one can simply ask for donations during the event that can be given to the animal shelter foundation. We also had a school wide drive to collect blankets, pillows, milk bone treats, and dog bowls. By helping with this event, our members helped to "drain the kennel" and attempted to make every animals dream come true (to have a home).

We will get various type of plants to plant outside in this garden. These plants should be able to resist the elements. We will also use various tools such as shovels to help us dig holes. We are planning on putting many rocks around the garden with positive messages on them. Lastly, we will put benches and other areas to sit in for students in the garden.

Children in our Title One School have little time outside and very few opportunities to interact with nature. We will collect a team of volunteers (teachers, administrators, students and families) to clean out the trash, weed and mow, purchase moveable parts to encourage creative play, purchase and post materials to enhance knowledge of nature, including; trees, plants, bugs, animals and birds. We will create rules and policy regarding upkeep, including; weeding, bird feeders, and rules respecting all living things. We will install trash and recycling containers, purchase a rain barrel to reuse water, we will secure a donors choose to purchase the materials to build a small fish pond and will include the person who does gardening in the city to help with the organic garden and its upkeep.

so basically every government has a parks department so what we do is we raise money for play set equipment and then we go to a less fortunate community and we build a park.

A group of us will get together after school and pick up trash using gloves, bags, and long-handled tongs and snake catchers during one of our regularly scheduled R&S club meetings.

The target demographic is women in their freshman and sophomore years of high school when they are starting to consider the possibility of college and potential career paths. Our program will give a group of 5-10 girls the opportunity to acquire hands on experience working in a wildlife rescue. They will come in once or twice a month to build skills in animal husbandry and enrichment, learn about the zoological field and be guided through the mentorship of female animal curators at the Rescue. The girls will also work on a scientific project in which they will be instructed to study a specific animal and devise a suitable enrichment activity. For example, a puzzle with food rewards for monkeys. They then can create a report or presentation for science classes, or science fairs, etc. In addition to career development, our program will provide a therapeutic outlet to girls who may have difficulties at home, or in their communities. Working with animals and spending time in nature has been proven to reduce stress, aid in depression, and boost mood. This experience will help these girls to develop team-working skills, encourage female empowerment, become environmentally conscious and moreover, get them focused and inspired for their future.
