I will create a garden using milkweed and other native, indigenous plants to help the monarchs. Milkweed is the only plant that they can lay their eggs on and by using that plant I can encourage them to come here and create a safe spot for them. I will create the garden at my local elementary school with a group of fifth graders. They are in a class were they have to create a project and I will be there to help mentor them.

The "Botanical Garden" project will benefit the wildlife and community by adding more diversity of vegetation. This will give younger generations exposure to the importance of persevering and appreciating the environment. Also, this adds a group volunteer activity to the community that nurtures love within each other and the environment. Furthermore, the botanical garden will educate the public about environmental protection and discourages further construction or destruction of the land that is home to various species. This project we have decided to take on greatly influences people for various reasons. Primarily, the botanical garden adds more vegetation to the environment so that more fresh, clean oxygen can be released into the air for our use. Moreover, the addition of vegetation ensures more of the excessive harmful carbon dioxide emissions can be absorbed. Although the amount of change is small, this project is significant because it cultivates an outlook of growth and greener methods from the community. Additionally, the beautiful plants add aesthetic beauty to the community and nature has proven to lower depression and aid in pain relief (especially for elders). Not only does the project help people, more importantly it helps organisms around us. As more and more construction and destruction of vegetation occur, the more habitats of vital organisms are destroyed. By making an effort to add vegetation, we diversify the ecosystem and add potential habitats for organisms. Lastly, increased vegetation can serve as food for herbivores. Essentially, our wish for this project is to improve our neighborhood community by adding vegetation, preserve the vegetation that is already present and alert the public about environmental protection.

We create a birdhouse with a kit from home depot that was ten dollars. We will hang it from a certain point of my backyard's roof or something else high enough for birds to be comfortable staying in.

We took our weekend and decided to go on a small hike and clean up the region of the track trail. We took our trash bags, work gloves, and plenty of water and began our afternoon long venture out to the trail. Within the first hundred meters or so, groupings of trash were visible, and we set out to work. It is our goal to make the homeowners and cross country team more aware of how their use of the trail impacts the ecosystems in place.

The main goal of the project is to beautify a bland, sewer oriented area planted in the center of a neighborhood in Cedar Park. Six grams of mixed wildflower seeds are projected to plant, grow, bloom, pollinate, and repeat as they spread all across the sewer area. According to forestry.gov, the benefits of wildflower plant and growth include: plant diversity attracting insects and other invertebrates, adding a change in palate of color to an urban area, and activating the community around the affected area to maintain and create opportunity for natural studies and art lessons.

We plan to plant a few milkweed plants which attract butterflies. We want to perform this action because we think butterflies are crucial to our environment.

Our project will take a piece of land that needs some TLC and turn it into a garden area. We will clean and clear existing vegetation and replace it with California Native plants that will attract and sustain butterflies, bees and birds.

To create a place where teachers can bring students to explore the great outdoors in their school community.

Our project will remove plants currently housed in a concrete raised bed by the 6th grade eating area and replace them with plants native to Southern California, as well as use plants that will attract pollinators to our campus. Our group will be involved in researching the plants, planting the garden, and routine care of the garden.
