I will conduct classes teaching about the amazing Monarch Butterfly, including their life cycle, migration, dangers they face, ways they help us, such as their role as pollinators, and how we can help them. I will present a Powerpoint presentation that includes vivid images, maps, and statistics, and then the class participants will make milkweed and native flowering seed bombs as well as plant milkweed seeds in pots to be started indoors.

The project will consist of several people in my community working together to start a beehive. This process will take a significant amount of time spanning over several months. There is a 25 acre farm, where the owner has given us permission to make this possible. The owner of the farm owns a local restaurant, she will be able to support me and the crew in making this endeavor a reality. Over the next few weeks I plan on gathering as much research, supplies, and people as I can.

Our two projects will be carried out by youth throughout the spring and into future years. We hope that they will be carried out by future youth to impact their lives as well. The main idea of the pollinator project is to educate the community and help restore the population of pollinators in our community. This project is mainly located on the Marion Polk Food Share Youth Farm in Salem, Oregon which gives the kids a good amount of support and space to create their project. The first step in their process has been to plan the attraction of pollinators and the placement as to where this will be carried out. They spend much of their week dedicating free time to the development of this project and will soon begin to educate the public about the pollinators and their importance. The second project is just blooming. It has a very broad ideology of creating a permaculture garden free to youth volunteers and hungry members of the community as well as providing habitat and restoration for the ecology of the area. It is in the planning process and will soon be carried out in the two areas of Oregon partnering with different agencies in its development. This project is meant to take a large amount of time to build a foundation because we hope that it will survive for many years to come.

Our goal is to create a pollinator garden as an outdoor learning environment to educate our students and community about the importance of pollinators on our food supply while helping to increase the pollinator population.

Outdoor Education Gardens: *Butterfly Garden to bolster milkweed plants for monarch butterflies in an area that reclaims water from rain, roof and water fountains. *Hydroponic Garden growing produce to sell in our class business and donate to culinary club. *Pond Environment to raise fish and water plants for a learning environment

Starting February 8th, the children will begin by drawing a map of the campus and include all the wildlife they have seen. Then they will cut open a couple of pumpkins from our gardens, fill them with dried corn, goat grain, and birdseed. The children will place the pumpkins in the woods boarding the east side of our school campus. Teachers will place a camera to video record animals that come to eat from the pumpkins day and night. The children will hypothesize what animals will visit their pumpkin feeders over the next month. They will also use the clues they have learn about to identify what animals came, by looking for the tracks, fur, and scat of the animals.

My project will focus on spreading the awareness of overfishing and how much of a serious issue it is.

Our project will add mosquito repelling plants and herbs to our playground and outdoor classroom space. We would also like to plant butterfly plants to attract monarchs and other butterflies native to our area. We will plan, plant, water, and observe the life cycles of both plants and insects all while hopefully decreasing the mosquito population in our outdoor exploration areas.

Students, family and community members are going out with a data collection worksheet and pollinator picture chart to record their observations of local pollinators (who, where, when, quantity). They then go online to our web site and load in their findings. These findings will then be the data to populate our maps. These maps will help our communities better understand the state of pollinators that are important members of our ecological communities.
