Our group participated in the Earth Day Festival at Koreshan State Park by setting up a booth and educating the public about ways to care for their bodies, homes, pets and gardens with completely natural products. We gathered recipes from their homes and looked up others in books and on the Internet. We produced samples from homemade supplies and took turns sitting at the booth and educating festival patrons about the production and use of homemade cleaning products. Twenty-six participants contributed two hours each. We also handed out a brochure about the dangers - to our health and that of the environment - of mainstream cleaning, pet care, body care and gardening products. Our group also visited other festival vendors and camped at the state park together that weekend.

Our group created a performance that integrated science, writing, reading, drama, art, dance, music and community action. We performed the play, "Paws, Feathers and Fins," on June 8, 2006 in front of an audience of parents and students. The futuristic play's message was one of taking action to protect the planet and all the beautiful animals that inhabit her. We made informational posters on endangered animals, wrote original poetry about the animals, designed costumes and choreographed dances for this performance. Students were actively involved in determining how to get the group's message out to the audience. Over the course of a month, students rehearsed and generated interest in saving endangered species. The audience seemed really impresed with our hard work and walked away with something to think about. Twenty-three participants contributed 30 hours each. Our group raised $60.
