The Gladstone Indian Education students will participate by visiting our own Lake Michigan as well as the nearby rivers and Bay. They will sit for a half hour and journal every animal and insect that comes to the water to drink. They also will have to look up the message that each of these animals bring to them. Since in the Native Tradition, it is said that each animal is a messenger and carry a message for those who come across it's path. Then, the students have to share their findings with their classroom, parents, and teachers. For their parents, this is a very important piece of information, since many of those parents, grandparents and great grandparents lost the traditions during the boarding school era. This is a message that needs to be delivered through our messengers, for the messengers. Water is Life. Take care of our precious resource. Chi-Miigwetch (Big-Thank You)

Riley and I have decided to host a river cleanup with the help of a friend of Mrs. Judah’s; Stephanie Bastianon. Once she responds we hope that our classmates, families, and the community will show up to make our beautiful Petaluma gorgeous.

I will hopefully be teaming up with the Petaluma River Foundation to clean a specific part of the Petaluma River. We will go out for a day and clean all the garbage we find.

The goal is to make plushie animals of the different macro invertebrates in our local area. I have already made prototypes (out of clay), but the plan is to actually make small stuffed animals that get people to know and care more about the life we have in our waterways. If I can figure out a way to make these and sell them, then I can donate any profits to organizations in this area that take action to better the watershed ecosystem.

I am introducing a new program in our school to raise awareness of the major environmental issues in the world today. Children will learn about an issue, chosen by them and their teacher/s, and will learn ways to help the earth and reduce the problems caused by humans.

We will learn how to do vermi-composting as well as traditional composting so that we can use the compost in our outdoor classroom as well as at home. We will learn what is good for composting and what we shouldn't put in it as well as build or purchase a compost bin for our school.

We will accomplish this project by hanging up signs near the water fountains in our school. It will make people become aware of the harmful affects and remind them to use a reusable bottle.

My project will collect rain water and I will accomplish this by placing a rain barrel in my backyard to collect it. My mom will use this to water her plants instead of using the tap water. This will be more cost efficient for her and it is reusing our resources.
