Our group is partnering with members of the Cherokee Ranch and Castle Foundation to plan community service projects we can help them with, and science and cultural education efforts our students can benefit from. The Ranch is 3400 acres of protected, native habitat directly South of Metro Denver. It is bounded by several other protected spaces which total some 14,000 acres of natural space virtually surrounded by the sprawl of the metro area. We have plans to study the native species, help improve the grounds. We hope to develop educational partnerships with investigating scientists and work on documentation. It is our goal to figure out how to educate the surrounding community on the importance of continuing to protect such a beautiful space. In the short run we aim to build bat houses to install in the spring and work on waste management and energy sustainability projects.

Our students have worked with several organizations to harvest seeds from flowering plants that are native to NYC and are in the process of overwintering and seeding these seeds so they are ready to be transplanted into the garden. We will transplant the native flowering plants in early spring and care for and maintain the garden throughout the spring.

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 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.
