We have planted 130 fruit trees and have showed the children how to use the fruit they grow to make jams and chutneys. We have planted a native wildflower garden and a butterfly and bee garden with specific flora that attracts local fauna such as honeybees and butterflies to flourish in our area. We have build an eco friendly greenhouse from single use plastic bottles. We have build a frog bog to provide a habitat for our native common frog and natterjack toad as they have suffered a lot of habitat loss.

The "Botanical Garden" project will benefit the wildlife and community by adding more diversity of vegetation. This will give younger generations exposure to the importance of persevering and appreciating the environment. Also, this adds a group volunteer activity to the community that nurtures love within each other and the environment. Furthermore, the botanical garden will educate the public about environmental protection and discourages further construction or destruction of the land that is home to various species. This project we have decided to take on greatly influences people for various reasons. Primarily, the botanical garden adds more vegetation to the environment so that more fresh, clean oxygen can be released into the air for our use. Moreover, the addition of vegetation ensures more of the excessive harmful carbon dioxide emissions can be absorbed. Although the amount of change is small, this project is significant because it cultivates an outlook of growth and greener methods from the community. Additionally, the beautiful plants add aesthetic beauty to the community and nature has proven to lower depression and aid in pain relief (especially for elders). Not only does the project help people, more importantly it helps organisms around us. As more and more construction and destruction of vegetation occur, the more habitats of vital organisms are destroyed. By making an effort to add vegetation, we diversify the ecosystem and add potential habitats for organisms. Lastly, increased vegetation can serve as food for herbivores. Essentially, our wish for this project is to improve our neighborhood community by adding vegetation, preserve the vegetation that is already present and alert the public about environmental protection.

We will promote picking up trash in our community by posting fliers and we will also be going out to said parks and trails to pick up trash.

I think that aiding in wildlife inhabitability will positively affect the life that is distressed by human activity. The way I can do that is by adding bird houses and feeders in my backyard so that the birds that are affected by the cutting down of trees still have a home. Also, I can have a vine of ivy or flowers that attract bees.

We create a birdhouse with a kit from home depot that was ten dollars. We will hang it from a certain point of my backyard's roof or something else high enough for birds to be comfortable staying in.

My project will take carbon dioxide and turn it into oxygen due to me planting several shrubs and flowers. I will take a section of my backyard and create a flowerbed by digging up the existing grass, dig holes, and then plant the shrubs and flowers there. I will then cover the area with soil and water it every other day.

Our project will benefit plants and animals in the community park and trails. We plan to hang signs reminding the public to stay on the trails as they walk throughout the nature trail. This reminder will generously help people remember to stay on the path and not disrupt the wildlife and their habitats.

We took our weekend and decided to go on a small hike and clean up the region of the track trail. We took our trash bags, work gloves, and plenty of water and began our afternoon long venture out to the trail. Within the first hundred meters or so, groupings of trash were visible, and we set out to work. It is our goal to make the homeowners and cross country team more aware of how their use of the trail impacts the ecosystems in place.

The main goal of the project is to beautify a bland, sewer oriented area planted in the center of a neighborhood in Cedar Park. Six grams of mixed wildflower seeds are projected to plant, grow, bloom, pollinate, and repeat as they spread all across the sewer area. According to forestry.gov, the benefits of wildflower plant and growth include: plant diversity attracting insects and other invertebrates, adding a change in palate of color to an urban area, and activating the community around the affected area to maintain and create opportunity for natural studies and art lessons.
