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.

We are planting Sugar Maple again! This time more trees, and across the hill from the new track. More people expecting to come out.

The trees planted will better the environment at Keystone, they will also be used once they are matured for Keystones Maple Sugaring program, that benefits the community and helps create interest in tree conservation and a green lifestyle

We are trying to show cycles, impacts on the natural world and what can become of recycled materials... How we can reduce our carbon footprint with a little thinking outside-the-usual...

First, I will look alone for any obvious dangers to clean before the students are exposed. Then, I will educate about the the dangers, and use leather gloves, rakes, wheel barrels, and what is needed to make the outdoor classroom safe. My 4th grade students will measure and design the landscape to plan and read about what creatures and bigs survive in a high-dessert climate. They will use IPADS and field note notebooks to collect such data. We will recognize the established habitats and will not disturb them. Students will use power saws to build and assemble benches, design information plaques that explain about the existing habitat and what is necessary to keep them safe.

We have started to plan it and make posters advertising to our school to come. Also we are asking the science teachers if they will offer extra credit if people to come as an incentive.
