I want to spread the word around at school, and in the community; We will start by decreasing the amount of time we spend in the shower, watering our plants, leaving the faucet running, etc. so that we can slowly, but surely, regain our water.

Roots and Shoots kids are learning about the water cycle and the importance of sustainability and restoration of our waterways. Children will be gathering a sponsor and painting a recycled rain barrel to be utilized by their sponsor to gather rain for a sustainable use. Our project will bring awareness to the water cycle and show our stewardship to protect our waterways along with promoting sustainability for the Willamette Valley. This will be accomplished by children inspiring adults to create sustainable lifestyles into their daily lives.

The Green School Dive Club has teamed up with the Gili Eco Trust and Manta Dive to create habitat for the marine life around Gili Air, Lombok, Bali. In June of 2013, six Green School students helped to design, build, submerge, and connect a bio reef on the east coast of Gili Air. Choosing a replica of the Green School bridge as a model, this 8-meter long 1.5 meter bridge now rests in the water about 30 meters in front of Manta Dive. This year, grade 8 student Britain Anderson decided to lead the project as part of his Quest project. Britain will be designing and building another reef which he will attach to our Green School Bridge in May to continue to grow our Green School Bio Reef. Nice work Britain!

Students will make observations of the nature around them, participate in educational activities at each site, and learn about projects that protect nature. At each site they will document their experience in an explorer logbook and be encouraged to share their stories on a personal blog. From each field trip they will also take a series of follow up activities they can do at home that are connected with the lessons from each experience.
