Through the Common Ground program students will learn compassionate land management skills at the Crane Trust Nature Center. These students will be removing invasive young eastern red cedar trees from native prairie habitat, they will extend the present hiking trail system by developing a new trail and they will be creating a new viewing blind where they and the public can observe sandhill cranes and other wildlife along the Platte River.

We will start a social media way to link youth around the globe and inspire each other as well as support and advise each other to restore the earth and all on it to live in peace and great conditions.

We already started with a brainstorm back in December. We are aiming to have it completed in May when it will go on display with an opening ceremony that will allow the students to meet local leaders.

We will purchase native, drought tolerant seeds and plants and plant them then tend to them on our campus to encourage increased biodiversity of flora and fauna. This will also beautify our campus.

we will (with permission) replenish vacant and undesirable spots with beautiful sweet-smelling wildflowers for the bees and for US!

Our project is all about action! Students will be working together with people that are master gardeners and people that are knowledgeable about the Chesapeake Bay watershed in seeking guidance on how our part of the frog area helps contribute towards the Chesapeake Bay. Our lessons will be shared directly with the classroom Earth Science teachers in Earth Science grade 6, which will, in turn, be passed on to the students and be shared in a meaningful, relevant, real-world manner.

We are currently undergoing a large classroom remodel to provide more local young learners the opportunity to enroll in our program and connect to nature while learning to care for our planet! We want to make a classroom that is environmentally friendly, using resources that are responsibly resourced or recycled. A large part of our remodel is focused on bringing the outdoors indoors so that our explorations can continue once inside the classroom walls. We plan to create a large discovery center area with space for students to observe elements of nature and record their observations within their personal nature journals.

My students and I would work with our Technology/Construction staff in the design and construction of two wooden work tables that would be built between three trees. Students would be responsible for all of the work....from researching designs, what type of wood will be needed, to the actual construction of the work tables!

We will generate pamphlets to educate people about reuse and recycling that can benefit animals. We will hand out the pamphlets to our community. We will focus on straws and plastic bags. For the first people that arrive, we will provide them with a reusable bag or a reusable straw.

After several brainstorming sessions we narrowed our idea down to recycling mismatched lost socks to create homemade snowmen (decorated with recycled materials) to deliver to the local retirement communities. The snowmen will be two-fold; a winter decoration stuffed with birdseed to be feed to wildbirds come the first day of spring!
