Our project will help in planting six trees on a barren street that contains very few plants. Our club is partnered with a non-profit organization called TreePeople who will help our volunteers learn the process of properly planting the trees. Many of our volunteers have the title as a Supervisor Volunteer because they have had experience with planting and caring for numerous trees. Their role is to assist any volunteer that is still unsure of the process or is their first time in planting trees. We will promote our event to our club to receive as many volunteers as we can get. Our club is always ready and happy to help the environment, and our supervisors will help in overseeing the event.

We will continue to reduce and recycle organic matters using the compost bin we created. We will use the compost in our student built raised garden bed near the lunch benches and plant flowers which will invited pollinators such as butterflies and hummingbirds.

Our group participates in Project FeederWatch, a citizen science program of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Our group wants to know what species over-winter in our area and what species migrate through. We are along the Pacific FlyWay. We count species weekly (from early November through early April) and report our data to Project FeederWatch and eBird. We will be considering ways to make our community more bird aware and bird-friendly by outreach at community events and the local library. We will be seeking to create awareness of our school's viewing stations and encouraging people to create their own. We'll also create visual displays to educate people about birds they're likely to see. Students will also make presentations at the school during the morning assembly to educate the school community about our local birds. We will create and post informational signs to help other students and community members know what birds they're seeing.

crisis! We are teaming up with the non-profit organization Thirst Project to help educate our college community about what is going on in the world. We are taking a sustainability graduate class as a group and our working to raise awareness as well as funds to help build wells over seas. We are presenting around campus to different classes and clubs. We are also having the organization come and represent their work through a 45 minute presentation held on campus. We are hoping to use funding to help purchase refreshments to encourage attendance. We are also looking to use the funds for fundraising and soliciting materials such as flyers and fact handouts. Our end goal is to raise $12,000 through the CSUN community to help fully fund a well in Swaziland with the help of Thirst Project's resources.

Our project will be to plant trees using compost from Cal State University, Northridge Sustainability Institute. We want to ensure that the trees will have a healthy start in order to survive in harsh conditions.

We will go throughout the community and clean yards for the elderly that are unable to do their upkeep. We have been throughout the community and realized that there are so many elderly here that need their yards swept or grass mowed. I will take a group of people and we will go out and do this for them.

Our students will create no sew fleece blankets and donate them to the Project Linus local group.

The students will engage in learning as they research, design and implement a plan to enhance their school campus by creating an insect habitat, providing nesting sites for birds, planting native plants to Coastal Georgia while learning how these organisms work together and how we can preserve yourselves and the habitat.

Our students collect data on water quality samples. They test water in a local stream and determine what water quality issues might be occurring in our local community. The use the community map they generated to determine what impact humans might have on this local stream and then where this local stream ends up. This gives the students a local phenomenon to explore but the mapping project also asks them to go a bit more global. By testing water that will eventually end up in the LA River and then the Pacific Ocean students are considering what impact we have upstream and what that would mean further downstream. Our students then take the water quality data they have gathered and generate evidence-based service learning campaigns. For instance, this year we had a fire that occurred right next to the stream so students researched the impact of this fire and discussed the fire with firefighters. Then, the generated a series of informative posters to share with the community. Another group created a social media campaign about protecting newly-emerging riparian areas.
