We are going to help plant trees and plants at the Calabasas MRT. Part of this place burnt down from the Old Calabasas Fire last year. Our hope is to bring the space back to life and remove non native plants invading the territory.

Our project will provide summer roosting sites for up to 300 bats. To begin the project, we ordered the Bat Conservation Internation's student education kit and completed several of the included activities to gain an appreciation for the importance of bats in controlling insect populations in our area. We also learned about white-nose syndrome which is decimating bat populations in North America. We then researched bat house types and selected a single-chamber bat house for our project. We then met muliple times to build and paint the houses. We selected two campus locations based on what we learned about bat preferences and had our grounds crew install the homes. We are eagerly awaiting bats!

To complete this project, we applied for (and received!) two small grants to help with purchasing supplies. We researched and selected the most appropriate structure for our budget. We also met with our cafeteria service in regards to the farm-to-table portion of the project. And, of course, we had a community build date when we raised the structure!

Club members viewed a brief video, How to Use a Paper Towel, and then designed and created signs to hang in every rest room in the school. Signs read, "One Towel" with an environmental conservation fact underneath the slogan.

My group will be selling bracelets and headbands from Haiti and we have also ordered Haitian flag stickers to sell at our booth. This is just a small sale but it will take a lot of preparation.

KYE-YAC will once again team up with FIRST, an organization created by world renowned engineer and scientist, Dean Kaman. FIRST is an acronym for: (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science & Technology.) KYE-YAC will support FIRST teams in the World robotic competition by raising funding to help get a regional champion team to Houston to compete against international teams. Our support will allow a local/regional team to learn valuable STEM and life skills. They will also be eligible for over $50 million dollars in scholarships.
