Our goal at MBES is to feed the hungry of Oconee County! Our school has an overarching theme of sustainability, and our third grade is in charge of "feeding" the garden with nutritious compost. We are trying to get all of our school involved in that process so that we can create an efficient process to compost with materials that we use everyday.

Students will use environmental DNA (eDNA) to monitor populations of endangered and threatened species located within the Raccoon Creek watershed of Paulding County (Dallas, GA). Initially, a minimum of 100 students will have an opportunity to work directly with several community partners to study the biodiversity and environmental significance of this prominent waterway. However, this project proposal represents the first step in a large-scale partnership. Thus, this project would eventually benefit the entire Paulding county community. The mini-grant will be used to purchase supplies and reagents needed to perform eDNA analyses and would also greatly defray the cost of other monitoring equipment needed for the start of this project. The equipment and eDNA samples will be used in successive years and would therefore benefit additional students in the future. The overall goal of this project is to provide students with an authentic learning experience with real-world applications.

This year, we have been studying how a single change to an ecosystem can disrupt the entire food web. We became very concerned when we learned that bee populations were declining around the world because without bees, plants don't get pollinated! Our grade level has decided to build a bee sanctuary at our school that will cater to mason bees, which are safe bees, but also good pollinators. Our contribution to the bee sanctuary will be to design and build bee "baths" where bees can get water. We will also include solar powered water pumps in our fountains because we know that stagnant water can be a breeding ground for mosquitoes, which we are trying to avoid.

We will start by finding ways to help in our own community by participating in beach and waterway clean ups. We will grow the effort by raising awareness and inviting others to join in. We will use art, sewing and writing to get our message across and fund raise. We will create our own reusable sandwich and snack bags that can take place of hundreds plastic bags. Our young group members will help inspire other young people in their schools and communities through art and through action.
