My project will take native Texas wildflowers and plant them in a green space used as a sidewalk. I will do it by going to a nursery buying the flowers and planting them around the trees in the green area.

We chose to build a birdhouse because though it is something small, it makes a huge impact on the surrounding environment. By providing birds with a cool shelter, we are inviting them to make a difference in our area. Without birds, our ecological system would be thrown off and take time to repair.

In order to improve the environmental habitat in our school community, we will go around our block and collect all of the trash left by the students at Cedar Park High School. This is only a temporary solution, but in order to stop or reduce the pollution caused by the students, we plan to create posters, not only informing about the long term environmental consequences, but the short term ones, as well. We will post these posters throughout the school to hopefully inform the students about the harm they are doing when they engage in simple acts like leaving trash on the ground.

Our project will clean out the existing garden space and allow service learning to take place. Our group will learn about the importance of green space and also pollinators in the community. We will then work together to determine what plants and items we wish to include in our garden to make it inviting to all. We will be cleaning the garden, planting the plants and trees, inserting furniture and maintaining the space throughout the school year.

The Air Pollution Community Map will allow users to learn about which areas accumulate the most traffic and air pollution as a result. It will also provide ideas and ways for them to lessen the amount of car traffic and gas emissions. My students will familiarize themselves with their local neighborhoods. They will map out and also survey the areas of heavy traffic in the community. Then, they will come up with ways to improve the air quality in their community.

Our grant will fund the purchase of plants, supplies and tools to plant the garden. Students in 2nd-3rd grade and the Nature Club will work together to plant, water and maintain the garden. We welcome all classes to use this area as an outdoor classroom and observe that when we "grow it - they will come!"

Our project will take a piece of land that needs some TLC and turn it into a garden area. We will clean and clear existing vegetation and replace it with California Native plants that will attract and sustain butterflies, bees and birds.

Our students will begin by visiting each building and asking the building managers about the best recycling practices that would fit into each respective site. The students will then write a recycling and logistic proposal for each building. Once a plan is in place, we would like to purchase designated recycling receptacles for the buildings on site as well as for events. This would ensure that the recycling will get sorted properly and can easily be delivered to the recycling center. We plan to weigh the plastics, glass, paper, metal, light bulbs and batteries before delivering it to the recycling center. We plan to use the measurements as a teaching tool and to make comparisons from month to month and year to year.
