We want to learn more about how we can reduce our impact on the environment by starting a recycling program at school, working in our school garden and continue gathering information on the temperature, clouds and soil around the school campus. However, of all the things we are learning, the one that would have the greatest impact and fastest to implement would be a recycling program. Obtaining containers for every classroom in school, setting up a schedule for having the containers from each classroom emptied out on a regular bases. As an incentive to have every classroom participate, we would offer a pizza party for the classroom that recycles the most.

This project will go around the streets and pick up all the trash and weigh it to see how much we found. I care and hopefully you do to.

Each year, we have anywhere from 80-200 volunteers. All the volunteers work very hard from 9 am – 12 pm, to collect trash, pulled out weeds(do not allow any and all harmful chemicals on our grounds), re-mulched the trees, flower beds and the nature trail. Girl Scout Troop participate on our Earth Day by teaching our volunteers about water conservation and have “Recycle Craft” table where we teach the volunteers/public how to make everyday items (e.g., bows) from recycled materials. Each year, we preserve our nature and environment by weeding, mulching, watershed clean-up, learning about water preservation and learning to use recycled materials. We work with Longwood University in their Clean Virginia Waterway project by providing trash collected data. Additionally, we sponsor watershed cleanup twice a year in conjunction with our neighboring high school students. We are teaching these students how to participate and lead such events.

We plan to paint each white classroom building (each is a single classroom) with low VOC environmentally friendly paint, and build a beautiful ecologically friendly garden in all the open areas between buildings and along the paths. We will paint a variety of murals with green messages, especially the three R's - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. We will generate informational signs about environmental stewardship and ways for teens to make a positive impact.

Our first step was to raise money for the project. We did this by selling potted crocus plants on Women's Day. Now, we are waiting for the weather to improve so we can work with a local community group to clean up an empty block and make it clean, safe play area.

In collaboration with SOLVe (a state wide volunteer organization- solveoregon.org), we organized a work party to remove invasive plants from a hillside and growing in the understory areas. The event was publicized statewide and members of the public were encouraged to participate. We also hoped to weed a butterfly wildflower garden, which has milkweed plants growing in it.
