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.

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.

Hopefully, in cooperation with a donation from Lowe's, each grade level will be able to plant in the courtyard.

To create the pollinator garden, we must first clean up the project site, a courtyard "reading garden" that is currently in disarray. University students will hold a series of educational lessons and activities in the kindergarten class at Pizzo Elementary, to explain the importance of pollinators and give the students a sense of ownership of their project. During one such activity, we will help the students choose plants that will be attractive to many native pollinators in Florida. In early spring, we will have a planting day and celebration with the students as we plant the garden together. Hands-on educational activities both in the classroom and more importantly in the garden will continue once the garden has been established. We have obtained funding from USF's College of Arts & Sciences, and intend to complete the creation of the pollinator garden in Spring 2015.

We will organise a day at school dedicated to a huge litter pick! We will provide students with gloves and equipment to help them with their task. We will designate different areas of the school to different year groups. We will then lead an assembly encouraging the students to maintain the cleanliness of the school site and its surrounding area.

To stop vandalism and destruction, and encourage school beautification, the class will create 1-minute skit presentations showing various instances of the actions taking place, and record them using a video camera. These videos will then be put onto CDs and distributed to other classrooms so other students can be made aware and encouraged to stop their negative behavior. They also plan to start "junior janitors" to have students make sure their peers are not littering or wasting food at lunchtime. To promote kind behavior and "the golden rule," they will make posters around the school with positive messages.

We will make a community map of our local area and research our local birds. We will learn their names and learn about their habitats and needs. We will clean up the habitat.

We have placed 8 feeders of different colors in our courtyards. We made the feeders so that they are all identical except for the color. We have red, orange, yellow, blue, purple, pink, white and black feeders. We have designed a plan to randomize where we place the feeders and change their position every two weeks. This is to be sure that it is actually the color of the feeder that is attracting the birds not the location. All feeders are filled with the same food. We have bird cameras focused on the feeders to make sure that we are getting all of the birds that visit our feeders. We only count the bird if we can tell it ate out of the specific colored feeder.
