The 8th grade students at Saint Paul the Apostle School will lead the community in a greening project for our campus. They will research, design and create a landscape plan that has positive environmental impact. Working with the administration, teachers, students and drawing from the expertise of our parent community, they will lead the school in implementing the plan culminating in a planting day.

My students will improve upon the garden space as it is right now. They are visiting the Conejo Valley Botanical Garden to take a tour of the native species growing there and to get advice from their expert gardeners. They will be researching what butterflies and plants are native to our local area and make a list of what could be possible to include in our garden. They will meet with the school district's gardener to find out the water restrictions and get advice on how to best use the water designated for this spot in the most appropriate way. Once this is done, they will be working with our school's parent-run EcoTeam to continue to transform this budding garden into a living, learning, native species garden.

We envision 400+ students and their families will learn about plastic marine debris. They will be engaged and challenged to make a difference which in a small way will work towards keeping our beautiful coastal location cleaner. The benefit depends on how our investment in the next generation plays out. If we are able to impart the importance of reducing the use of plastics as well as recycling, we will not only be encouraging the students to keep the environment cleaner, we will be showing them how to conserve not only natural resources such as petroleum and natural gas, but also landfill space. By using our art exhibit, we bring a visual and interactive presentation to engage the students in this project and teach them about the negative impact of plastic marine debris on marine biota. It will be a unique introduction to this global problem. Educational materials will encourage participation in the clean-ups. These clean-ups will show them firsthand the extent to which careless dropping moves so close to entering the ocean and the amount that exists in the environment. Press releases and emails to our local community will highlight the endeavors of these young students.

We will meet at the beach and pick up garbage. We will weigh and categorize the waste we collect.

Our project will take many, many pounds of largely non-recyclable plastic packaging out of the waste stream as well as removing litter from our community and the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Our bench will also be a visual representation of how much litter we generate and the possibilities of repurposing it. Since February 2014, we have been saving all of our plastic packaging, both from home and from school, as well as using all of the plastic litter from our school campus, and stuffing it into bottles to make bottle bricks. Our after-school club constructs bottle bricks; students in my class make bottle bricks by choice at recess or other free time, and students and staff make bottle bricks at home. We are working with a local nonprofit and with the East Coast representative of the international Peace on Earthbench Movement to construct our bench.

Identify students in two groups 7-10 years and 11-15 years. Design interactive lectures and workshops and hands on activities all geared for students.

The project will join forces with the local university Marine department and invite them to work with us. The local university will help us with the data information that we need as well as bring in marine life so that students will have a closer look. The students will keep a journal about their findings and make presentations to the class. They will display their work in the main hallway of the school to inform others about their work.
