Our project will complete the three aforementioned goals in the next six weeks and through to the end of the plant life cycle of the corn and sunflowers to be planted.

The project will improve the care for the plants within the school, perhaps increase the number of native plants and attract animals. Each class will adopt a particular area of campus to focus on in their care. The students will research the types of plants there are and what kind of care they need. The students will then care for the plants.
United States
The project will not only beautify our school landscape but it will teach our students all the steps involved in designing, preparing, and planting native plants. The project will bring our community, parents, and students together in creating a drought tolerant garden.

We will create a school flower and vegetable garden and harvest and share the produce. We will ask for donations from local stores to help with the costs. Students and staff at the school will maintain the garden.

Our Roots & Shoots groups coordinates an annual moth night each year. In 2013, we gathered in our backyard. In 2014, we collaborated with the National Park Service and gathered on the beach within the park boundaries. We will continue to take part each year and in doing so increase awareness and appreciation for these nocturnal pollinators.

Our project will be to put art on the storm drains, put screens cover them, have trash cans around them, have poop bags provide for the community to prevent contamination of the water, and have trash compacters installed where trash cans commonly get over filled. We will do all this by first taking pictures of the main visible storm drains around our school. We will make a map and pick the ones that get the most foot action. We will contact the city about getting permission to do art on the storm drains. We will start small to get some awareness on what we are doing. Once we hit our first storm drains we will then expand our efforts toward the other issues by reaching out to our local city council member, church, Play Ground of Dream (POD) and Youth Policy Institute (YPI) for more support.

I plan to have the group meet twice a month. At each meeting, we will cover some key vocabulary words as well as the concepts behind them. Each meeting will feature a hands-on project to illustrate the selected topic, such as a nature-related experiment, making bird feeders, water-scopes and outdoor explorations. Occasionally we may arrange extra meetings at nature centers and parks. Each meeting will end with a short song, poem or picture book relating to the topic covered. The topics covered will alternate between focussing on a trait found in many animals and how they compare, and focussing in depth on the natural history of a particular local species. This means that there will be one general topic and one species spotlight per month. Contact me for meeting locations and dates.

Planting trees and grass around the school compound
United States
After surveying problems on our campus, it was decided by the students that we needed to address the fact that all water from rains was being directed to a nearby wash were the water was then lost to the ocean. Additionally, we decided that the campus needed some beautification. It was determined that we could meet both goals with this project.
United States
Students to create a design by mapping a selected site for a drought tolerant garden. Students will work in groups to draw/sketch the selected area for the drought tolerant garden. The mapping will assist in the planting stage.
