Our outdoor classroom will become a thriving wildlife habitat attracting and protecting a multitude of urban flora and fauna, including milkweed, hawks, bats, insects, bees, birds, moths, and butterflies to the garden in an area of North Brooklyn with incredibly limited green space. PS 132 students raise money in their annual Penny Harvest and use the funds to give back to the community. Students have consistently chosen to donate a portion of the funds to the Garden every year.

The goal of all exhibits will be to follow the Roots & Shoots mission to make a positive difference to either people, or animals, or the environment.

We would like to learn from the Roots and Shoots program, how to work more effectively with the community; not just with providing sustainable waste management solutions (to people around protected areas where no system of waste management has ever existed) but also with improving living standards and increasing livelihood options for the community members.

In order to get the most out of the experience, we will make it into a fun game with prizes! We will split up into teams and spread out in different areas around our school, and meet back at a designated location afterwards. Those who collected the most trash will be awarded special prizes.

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.
