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.

Selin & I are going to build birdhouses & put them up in a local park with a high bird population & little trees to provide shelter & food for them.
United States
Our project will provide shade and food for the birds. We will build and paint a birdhouse and hang it up in a tree.

We chose to build a birdhouse because though it is something small, it makes a huge impact on the surrounding environment. By providing birds with a cool shelter, we are inviting them to make a difference in our area. Without birds, our ecological system would be thrown off and take time to repair.

In order to improve the environmental habitat in our school community, we will go around our block and collect all of the trash left by the students at Cedar Park High School. This is only a temporary solution, but in order to stop or reduce the pollution caused by the students, we plan to create posters, not only informing about the long term environmental consequences, but the short term ones, as well. We will post these posters throughout the school to hopefully inform the students about the harm they are doing when they engage in simple acts like leaving trash on the ground.

Our grant will fund the purchase of plants, supplies and tools to plant the garden. Students in 2nd-3rd grade and the Nature Club will work together to plant, water and maintain the garden. We welcome all classes to use this area as an outdoor classroom and observe that when we "grow it - they will come!"

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.

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.

The project that the students at Donaldson Elementary are requesting will allow them to build birdhouses. The students would like to build birdhouses for birds to use for nesting or as a shelter during winter. In addition, the students plan to use the birdhouses for scientific observations such as monitoring what types of things are used to make nests, how many eggs the bird lays, etc. Students will be extremely careful not to disturb the birds. With grant funding, the students will be able to purchase the necessary supplies such as lumber, dowels, wood glue, and stains. Students will carefully follow plans and when the birdhouses are completed, they will be hung on trees which have been a part of the school community for almost fifty years.
