First, students chose an environmental problem and a team to research the problem. Students write letters to businesses and organizations requesting information to distribute to the public. Next, students create a display board and creative props to use when they present their projects in a local park for Earth Day. The Earth Day projects are presented to parents at our school's Spring Open House. Students arrange with local businesses to display their Earth Day projects for a week downtown to further educate our local community. Students write to our local government representatives to promote their environmental solutions. Students participate in a variety of environmental action activities, from microtrash clean up to protect our local California condors, to riding electric skateboards, to solar energy promotions. Students create an Earth Day in the Park movie and post it to different websites or social media, to help educate our global community.

Our project will create monofilament recycling containers, place them at frequented areas in our town where we have identified an increase in monofilament trash. We will then monitor and empty these containers on a regular basis and send the monofilament to the Berkley Institute of Conservation for recycling.

Our project will be to create different types of activities for children (ages 3-10) that get them moving and get them interested in learning more about wildlife. We put together different stations: one was a venomous vs. nonvenomous snake identification talk with an albino corn snake. We used the snake so kids can touch her and learn that snakes aren't actually so scary! We had a couple crafts: bird feeders with sun butter and bird feed and an elephant craft. Since it was the day before Easter, we made an Easter egg hunt! We filled eggs with different kinds of candy and different pictures of local wildlife with little facts underneath. Then after they had collected them all, they could come talk to the volunteers about the local wildlife! There was also an oil spill station, where kids were able to see the impacts of oil on feathers and get to feel how different water is with oil in it.

We are forming an after school club of second to fifth graders in which we will create artworks about swifts to display in public and create and perform a puppet show for elementary students about swifts. We will research how swifts are faring in our town, and may propose to build a swift tower if we find a suitable site.
