We want to start the first pollinator highway of Athens. We make BeeSpots (: safe havens for urban bees providing food and habitat through insect hotels). We will create a path in the city that will be used as a safe pathway for the urban pollinators of Athens. We have already established 9 Bee Spots in Athens. Now, we want your help to establish more - plant more and make insect hotels!

In January, the children will decorate reusable canvas shopping bags by painting pictures of nature that will benefit from the reduction of using plastic bags. They will bring their bags home with a note explaining this project. The note will also ask parents to keep these special bags in their vehicles, and to use them when shopping for groceries and other items.

We want to create a weekly news and information program the helps to showcase the amazing things we are doing as a school to the local community. Our hope is to video record this information and put it out on our website as a weekly update.

Students will learn about the specifics of illegal dumping in their community and how it affects their environment and the habitat of local and migrating birds. They will take a field trip to a local illegal dump site where they will participate in a clean-up day as they gather items to repurpose into functional art in the form of bird houses, fountains or feeders or as sculptures. An exhibition of their trash made sculptures will take place in the local community. Students will take a field trip to a local wildlife sanctuary and Devil's Punchbowl Natural Area and Nature Center to experience and learn about the local wildlife. We will take students to Apollo Park for a bird watching experience. Representatives from the City of Lancaster will speak to students about how illegal dumping is affecting our local community and the resources available for residents of the city for waste disposal and recycling programs. We also plan to have the LA County District Attorney come and engage with the students in a conversation about legal action that is taken when one is caught dumping illegally.

Our project will provide sanctuary for local wildlife, including but not limited to birds and insects. While we have some plants already that attract critters, we would like to incorporate more native plantings, which will also allow this to be a low water use yard. Our plan is to remove the remaining sections of lawn, and replace them with native grasses and flowers that would attract the bird, insect, and other local animal populations, incorporating the new plantings with the ones already established.

We will find Monarch caterpillar eggs on the underside of milkweed leaves June to September, take the caterpillars home and raise them. Give caterpillars, information and instructions to anyone who seems interested. We will help spread milkweed seeds in the forgotten and unused spaces in the city.

Our students will be building bat houses to distribute and set up around the community. This will allow for a safe place for the bats to live while the community grows. Securing a place for the bats to live while the bats help the community by pollinating plants, fertilizing soil, and providing natural mosquito control!

We’ve been documenting the amount and types of litter we find on the beach. It is our hope to see a decline as we continue our efforts. Aside from a decline in trash, we hope to see an increase in beach clean-up participation, and an increase in the well being of wildlife and healthy ecosystems. For example, we have been thrilled to see an increase in Monarch butterflies this year at the beaches. As we do the clean-ups, others will hopefully feel inspired to reduce, re-use, recycle, dispose of waste responsibly, and protect wildlife.
