Actions we are taking: 1. We are currently rallying students to be ready to fill the capitol building when this resolution is voted on. We are contacting schools ranging from elementary to college around the state. We are still waiting to receive a time slot on the floor schedule, and will keep students posted with updates so they can be ready to carpool to the capitol from their location in Utah on the day this happens. 2. We are circulating an online petition in support of our climate resolution. So far, it has nearly 250 signatures. 3. We are identifying the legislative committees that our resolution will have to be passed through, and contacting representatives on those committees to urge them to support our resolution. 4. We plan to contact every possible state news network to cover this initiative once our Resolution is introduced. 5. If our efforts are successful and this resolution is passed, we will continue to work with our state legislators to ensure that they stay devoted to their commitment to address climate change.

My project will hopefully help the wildlife all over the world to live a better and healthier life. I will draft a letter to the president, and after weeks of working on this letter, it will be sent to the president.

Red mangroves filter and clarify the water, protect coastal communities from storm surge, prevent erosion, and provide a shelter for a wide variety of mammals, aquatic species, reptiles and birds. They are also a staple in the diets of the critically endangered Key Deer. Furthermore, evidence shows that mangroves combat global warming by decreasing atmospheric carbon dioxide. Wild Over Wildlife members, Florida International University SEAS, and Lee County 4-H Club members have collected thousands of propagules which are being grown in a variety of homes and in the FIU Shade House. After nine to twelve months, the seedlings will be transplanted to areas along the Gulf and Atlantic shores. We have numerous other non-profit organizations that have collaborated with us for the first two years and we have secured their assistance as the project expands for future plantings. To date, our project has involved more than 100 people including Wild Over Wildlife club members and community service partners. More than 80 hours of community service work has been done by each board member of WOW and others have joined for 6 hour shifts throughout the summer transplants and harvests.

We will be learning about this during our weekly Roots & Shoots after school enrichment time. We will be using Project Learning Tree curriculum to understand more about our environment and the human impact that we have through our everyday actions. We will learn more about what plants and trees are around us and how they help us and how we can help them. We will investigate which plants and trees we need more of to balance our local ecosystem. We will be able to identify what plants and trees we currently have and, if needed, plant additional trees and plants.

In our little meditation garden at school, we will plant bulbs for spring and summer flowers, as well as some fall plants to attract the insect wildlife that so desperately need our help! We know that Butterflies and Bees are having a hard time of it. We use vinegar and water to spray our precious plants and flowers. We weed by hand, on our knees and have planted all native plants in our garden...We manged to get a couple in Baisley Pond Park, too (all natives)!

We will place hanging succulent baskets in a high-profile location that needs sprucing up. They will be highly visible against a gray, empty wall.

1. We have placed a blue recycling bin in every classroom and office in all of the buildings on the campus. 2. Environmental club officers have a floor of each building to monitor and to empty the bins. 3. Once a week the officers empty the classroom and office bins into a hallway bins. 4. The maintenance crew then empties the hallway bins into the bins outside. 5. The city of Milford picks up the recyclable paper once a week. 6. There are also recycle bins on the sports fields. 7. Recycling is required at every school event.
