Once a week, in different locations around Houston, I'd like to have toddler groups meet up and learn, experience and interact with the natural world. I would collaborate with parks, museums and other organizations to help expand experiences.

We wrote a letter to the local newspaper (The Montclair Times) to let the public know about the damaging effects of pesticides. We created posters to place all around the parks in town We made a video to share with the public.

Indialantic STEM classes could use the shade house to observe plant growth, etc., while learning more about our local ecosystem. I feel it is important for younger students to understand more about the problems that face the Indian River Lagoon, and to also feel like they can make a difference. This project would engage your students, and afford them the opportunity to interact with high school-aged volunteers that are eager to be positive role-models.

We will take over and existing plot of dirt and create a beautiful butterfly garden at our middle school that will inspire us to be our best and to stand up for peace.

My project will educate kindergarteners to 2nd graders about the environment. I plan to achieve this by reading out loud books about topics such as climate change, endangered animals, etc. This will take place at a public library. At the end, we will do a activity to help the environment. Hopefully by the end of the session, kids will understand what we need to do for our planet.

My project will protect animals from eating any chemical or small pieces of trash. I will use gloves and trash bags to pick up all the trash lying around in and outside of our neighborhood.

Our project is to beautify the outside area of our classroom. We will learn how deep to plant natives that require very little water. We will redo an area that was a small rock garden that would create a quiet place to sit. We want an area to grow seedlings that is close to us and right outside our door is perfect. We will get first grade size tools to empower our class to do our own work. We need a new compost bucket in this area to collect our breakfast, snack and lunch waste so we can contribute to our vermicomposting in our big garden. We would like to put a layer of bark over the ground to limit water loss and keep weeds to a minimum.

Our class will study soil quality, sun duration, and survey available water for the planting beds across our campus. We will also inventory and identify existing plants on campus. Finally, we will work with this information to identify the best choices to meet our long-term, low water, native plant goals to fill these mostly-blank spaces with beautiful plant life.

Our approach to these problems will involve both research and action. We will research plants appropriate to our soil type and climate. We will weed out invasive plants, then we will purchase and plant environmentally appropriate plants and care for them as they acclimate to the environment. Each student will be responsible for a specific plant or small garden section. To judge our success, we will observe and record data on the growth of individual plants. We will also keep a running wildlife census with twice daily recordings of insects, butterflies and birds observed in the vicinity of the planting areas. Students will research the connection between the wildlife observed and the particular item in the garden that is attracting it. This should be evidence that our planting has been successful. We will also be taking temperature readings of ground near the plants and contrasting it with unplanted areas to see if we have been successful in cooling the campus environment.

Our project will take 4-6 months. We will start native plants from seeds, which, when established, will be used by TreePeople in their EcoTours and Mountain Restoration programs.
