In the middle of 2014-2015 school year, Riverfield Roots & Shoots students researched and planned how to build a small chicken coop. They planned how to sell the eggs, what supplies and food the chickens would need, along with keeping them safe from birds of prey. The students presented their plan to the administration and faculty. The project was approved and the chicken coop was built. The students then measured a plot of barnyard land for the area for the chickens to roam, dug all the post holes, and fenced it in for the chicken coop and hens.

This year's Chimp Enrichment Necklace project was very successful. We spent 2 group meetings making about 60 necklaces of dried fruit and cheerios, strung together with jute string. The people at Chimps, Inc. sent us photos and a video of the chimps enjoying our gift. It feels great to make the lives of these friends better. We are all much more aware of the issues around people's use and abuse of animals

The community will be invited to this event on Earth Day, April 22nd. A short presentation will introduce the project and four easy ways anyone can help bees, as well as give some information about the native bee house in the library's community garden. Then the Way to Bee! Worker Bees will host fun hands-on activities and a display, including games about bee communication through smell (pheremones) and dance (honey bee dance), a honey making activity where participants pretend to be a busy bee gathering "nectar" (water) with their "proboscis" (eyedropper) and "pollen" (yellow pompoms) with their "pollen baskets" (little baskets) from specially designed "flowers." They will also be shown how to make wildflower seed bonbons to plant wherever some native wildflowers are needed to feed the bees.

We will put the money we raise from the notecards towards one of these organizations. We want to help offset the veterinary bills to help spay and neuter the animals and help them find forever homes. Our basic timeline: 1) Members of our community are currently drawing and submitting their endangered animal pieces. The deadline is April 25th 2) Then, we will make the actual notecards which will take about 2 weeks 3) Next, we will sell the notecards at our anual Field Day in May and during our school's grandparent day. 4) Finally, we will donate the funds to an organization by the end of the school year.

The mission of this project is to Educate, Legislate, Populate! That is, educate the public, especially youth, about the importance of bees, the hardships they are facing, and how we all can help through presentations, workshops, and fun learning activities at public events. By working with local and state legislators, legislate bee-friendly changes to laws or regulations and work to support laws that help the bees and those who work on their behalf. And populate the state, and maybe beyond, with healthy bee populations that will be attracted to wild bee houses built for them, native bees placed in suitable locations via cocoons, informed bee helpers who will find their Way to Bee and do it, and suitable forage that will be planted through the wildflower seed balls and bee waterer instructions.

When doing this project, we will raise awareness about the declining honey bee population at our school and in our community. We will write our state and national legislators and representative, educate our peers, host documentary screenings, create educational materials, and host fundraisers to buy pollinator plants for our school gardens. We will also visit local organizations that are dedicated to helping the honey bee and homeless people with pets. This will be the first Roots and Shoots program at our school, and we are excited to be planting the Root and Shoots seed!
