The timeline is about 3 months, which we started by brainstorming and researching. We have been looking at different models for bird feeders that we can build. We will re-use various materials that otherwise would be thrown out as trash to make our bird feeders. We have brainstormed various questions we have such as whether different kinds of food attract different birds and what kinds of birds are good to attract in our area. We will continue to research about birds, bird feeders, and bird food and decide on models of bird feeders to build. We will present a proposal to the principal to get permission to implement this project, and this will enable the students to put together an organized presentation describing our project, the rationale, and how it will benefit our school community. Guided and facilitated by their teacher, students will read, discuss, use information they gather through research to answer questions, make decisions, organize the information and use the information to support their positions, and create something lasting to benefit their school environment. Hopefully, once the project has been implemented, students will present to various classes or perhaps even to the school. Students can talk about the project as well as how people should interact with birds they observe at the bird feeders.

Students will map GPS locations of all of the storm drains from our school to a 5 mile circumference around using Google Maps, GPS, trash weigh-ins, and accurate input of data onto spreadsheets. They will photograph their findings, and also videotape their efforts. They will come up with a rotational maintenance solution, which will be ongoing. They will then deliver a presentation to both the school at an assembly, as well as to Parents during Ecology Night in May, 2015. The Parent Night is being coordinated with an English Teacher, Mrs. Ximena Miller, whose husband is an active participant.

The Roots and Shoots class will be involved in building and painting a game of corn hole. We will put together a landscaping plan to submit to the children's home and then attend the green thumb festival and reach out to local Florida Native nurseries to purchase trees and plants that they approve. I will bring books to read to the kids about Monarch butterflies and gardens and then ask if any of them want to be involved in the actual planting. We will then plan a time that the children in the home who want to be involved can help us plant the butterfly and herb garden as well as any trees and plants. We will leave instructions on how to care for the plants and gardens. I will make follow up visits to help the children look for butterfly eggs and caterpillars and to encourage the use of the herbs in the garden as well as helping them make observations about the Florida Native plants and the wildlife that they are attracting. We would like to provide books to the Children's home on all of these topics as well as identification guides.

Students, teachers, and parents will clear out the rusty and broken tables and chairs behind the middle school modual and will recycle as much as possible then discard the rest. We will also paint the plywood shak that is now standing in the middle of the middle school nutrition area, scrub down the lunch tables, and we will plant some CA native flowers in our relaxation area. We will also install a recycling center in these location so the nasty plastic bottles are nolonger on owr grounds or in our landfields.

Our project is to create an activity book to educate children about Earth Day and about the environment. Members will create a puzzle book by hand drawing pictures and combining them on the computer. Ecoharmony will also host fundraising activities to raise funds to cover the cost of printing the activity books. We will either contact the librarian to see if we can again set up a table at the library to distribute activity books, speak with an elementary school principal to see if any of his classes would be interested in having some activity books, or we will apply to the city's Parks & Recreation Department to see if we can get a booth to pass out our activity books at the Earth Day Festival.
