We would like to purchase a tree or trees to plant in our schoolyard or locally. We would like our students to write an article for our local newspaper about the importance of trees. This article will also focus on deforestation and its negative impacts locally, nationally and globally. This article will also feature the endangered orangutan and hyacinth macaw, two species that depend on trees for survival. We also would like to educate our school and community about palm oil and how palm oil plantations are contributing to deforestation. Lastly, we'd like to introduce sustainable palm oil options or alternatives, in our foods and products, to our school and community.

On April 22, we intend to volunteer at the local zoo's earth day event. We hope to have an educational table about recycling. We also will prevent at the March for Science that will happen in downtown Logan the same day. A few of our club members will present about youth climate action. The Following weekend, we will speak at the People's Climate March Rally in Salt Lake City and lead the march to Governor Herbert's mansion to present our student climate resolution.

Our group sold lemonade at a stand at the local library to earn $60 to go toward an apple tree. The tree nursery donated the remaining $40 when they sold us the $100 tree for the amount we earned. Students then dug the hole and planted the 6 foot tall tree. We eagerly await spring to be sure our tree made it through the Colorado winter.

Out project will allow people who would normally not be able to see in great detail different stars or constellations have that opportunity. We will do this by having a few ipass with an app that shows the different constellations and where they are located in the sky. We will also have the Lacrosse Area Astrology group come and talk about the telescopes and teach people the basics of how to operate a telescope.

The project starts by raising environmental awareness. With lots of people going home and planting small plants which will eventually become big plants, it will reduce our carbon footprint minimally. One pound of greenhouse gases at a time.

We will collect water bottles and use them to make a vertical garden in the courtyard of my school. We will also assume full responsibility for maintaining and caring for the plants.

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.
