The Sacramento Zoo Teens will submit renderings of their mural painting for zoo supervisors to approve. Once approved, we will designate four 3 hour shifts for Zoo Teens to come in and work on the project. They will first sketch the mural and then gather paint to finish the project.

Our project will teach kids that they can come together in their communities and plant seeds in their homes or even in their schools. We have asked our classmates in school and at home to help us gather recyclable bottles and yogurt containers. After we collected, we sorted, cut holes for the water to drain, and even added string to some of the planters. In the end, we will attend a harvest festival and get kids and family members involved and do a hands on activity. We will assist the kids in making their own little planter to have in their homes. The kids who participate in this we learn that doing things like having little planters we help us in having fresh air and it would look beautiful in a home.

One corner of the school yard will be dug up and filled with plants that will attract butterflies and insects. Another corner will be dug up and infused with aromatic plants. Interpretive signs will be hung to explain the nature of the specialized areas. A cob bench will be constructed with the help of our students, showing that chunks of demolition cement can be reused to make a new structure. A pump will be installed, connected to a small solar panel, making a fountain work. The water pressure will change when the angle of the panel is changed, an act that can be done by our students. Finally, a structure will be built for climbing, using recycled materials. We will be collaborating with university architecture students. This will give them an opportunity to research and construct a structure, as they follow their passion to become architects. We hope to have much of the project completed by the end of the school year. But it is more realistic to say that it will be completed by December 2015.
Bahamas
There is a local public beach which is commonly littered with garbage. This garbage ranges from small plastic bottles to pieces of boats. My family will join me armed with garbage bags to remove the garbage. The beach will look better, the garbage will not re-enter the water and wildlife will no longer be threatened by these particular pieces of garbage.

We plan to educate our community about why dog waste can be so harmful, and provide them with resources to make the process easier. We think that by reaching out to a local official and convincing them to spend time and resources on this issue, we can make the maximum impact. We have been researching the negative effects of dog waste, the occurrence of uncleaned up dog waste in our community, and how people can do this more effectively.
United States
Our Roots & Shoots team members will team up with university students traveling from four universities in and out of state for spring break to work with Habitat for Humanity. We will be working on green spaces and making aesthetic improvements to owner occupied homes in a low income area and will prepare lots of land for a few new homes that Habitat will soon build.

Bring a community together that is so far broken that it may be the only thing to bring them back together. Community members, city council, district members and students/faculty members will develop a much better working relationship while working together for a much larger cause.
