Our project will clean out the existing garden space and allow service learning to take place. Our group will learn about the importance of green space and also pollinators in the community. We will then work together to determine what plants and items we wish to include in our garden to make it inviting to all. We will be cleaning the garden, planting the plants and trees, inserting furniture and maintaining the space throughout the school year.

The Air Pollution Community Map will allow users to learn about which areas accumulate the most traffic and air pollution as a result. It will also provide ideas and ways for them to lessen the amount of car traffic and gas emissions. My students will familiarize themselves with their local neighborhoods. They will map out and also survey the areas of heavy traffic in the community. Then, they will come up with ways to improve the air quality in their community.

We will know that the program is successful when we actually start making the mulch and we can notice a decrease in the amount of uneaten food that is thrown away. We will be outside during lunch to ensure that excess food from students is acquired and not simply thrown away.

The project that the students at Donaldson Elementary are requesting will allow them to build birdhouses. The students would like to build birdhouses for birds to use for nesting or as a shelter during winter. In addition, the students plan to use the birdhouses for scientific observations such as monitoring what types of things are used to make nests, how many eggs the bird lays, etc. Students will be extremely careful not to disturb the birds. With grant funding, the students will be able to purchase the necessary supplies such as lumber, dowels, wood glue, and stains. Students will carefully follow plans and when the birdhouses are completed, they will be hung on trees which have been a part of the school community for almost fifty years.

The project will be in memory of our late principal along with creating a habitat for birds and other animals. An eco-bench will also be will be created out of recyclable materials. This project began this summer. Teachers and staff laid cardboard and mulch down where memorial bench will sit. The bench was purchased with grant money and is ready to be installed soon. Further monies are needed to complete community garden for students to learn about habitat and plants. Plan to have students plant vegetable garden for community use along with planting proper flowers for attracting and feeding bees and butterflies.
