We will begin planting seeds this month and will distribute as soon as they are ready to be planted outdoors and the risk of frost is over.
A group of students of undergraduate classes surveyed the bird communities in a city college campus during the Great Backyard Bird Count Event (GBBC) Campus Bird Count 2018. They could identify around 30 species of birds during their 4 day bird count. Now they wish to create bird baths and would like to create small spaces for their wild counterparts. They also will be monitoring bird count after placing the bird baths
9-10 years old students learned about orangutans and the need to save them in Indonesia where they have become an endangered species due to illegal logging for palm plantations. This was followed by attending a lecture by Anne E. Russon, an expert on the subject. The students got inspired by the work done by her with BOSF (Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation) and decided to raise funds to adopt two baby orangutans. Over next few weeks, they made products out of recycled materials and set up a bazaar for the school community. The funds raised from the sale was used to adopt two baby orangutans for a period of two years. The bazaar was also used as an opportunity to spread awareness about conditions of orangutans. Students now plan to visit their adopted orangutans in Borneo to first-hand see, how these animals are being taken care of.
I will create a video and project board and share it with around 52 kids in my fifth grade class. I will also post my video here to bring awareness to Roots and Shoots members from all over the world.

We will shape our garden into a place where birds and bees feel welcome and find a safe haven. With the intention to recreate a natural habitat, enriched with plants, flowers and waterfall,... that benefite their health and natural way of being. While enjoying the realization of this project as well as seeing the wildlife flourish, we also would like to give an example to inspire others to create their own B-Garden.

The first part of the part has been sent to be peer reviewed by Metropolitan Community College Horticulture and University of Nebraska at Kearney Biology Department to see our rough draft using concrete to create an evaluated pond in the area. Once approved working with St Rosa to find live food fish in the area to stock the pond. We will then work on breed techniques we use in our state lab to breed tilapia to teach students at this college how we created this food network.
we will pick up pieces of rubbish that we see lying around, and put them in the bin. if we have a plastic bag handy, we will put the rubbish in there.
