We are arranging with our school and U-DOT to host our first semi-annual road clean up day. Once we get approval we will start advertising for it and offering incentive such as attendance loss makeup for helping with our effort.

We have already obtained permission from one of the park in Denver! Early next spring our TEP students will be helping the city and park maintenance crew add milkweed and other native plants and flowers to the garden areas around the park. Our students and other community members will monitor the populations of Monarchs at all stages throughout their migration and feeding season. We will also look at getting estimated counts of bees we see within the gardens. We hope this garden will become a pollinator hot spot and add to the beauty of the gardens as well.

Our project focuses on taking a pre-existing, currently unusable, baseball field and either rebuild it as a usable field, or create a better outdoor gathering space (maybe a garden, or picnic area, playground, meditation space, etc).

The project will focus on areas that need beautification. We will work on "filling in the gaps" on those areas that need attention. Planting trees and plants will create enjoyment, clean the air, and restore habitats for wildlife. The team will continue to monitor with our student advocates so a healthy environment can be maintained.

We are reaching out to local people and those overseas to donate trees and plants and then we will plant them in our new garden! Volunteers from all over the world have already pledged to help and we will be welcoming the local communities to help plant them too!

We will get gloves, trash-bags and a group of people and then will pick-up the park and when it is fully clean we will put trash in the the trash. We will take recyclables to the recycle center and any money we get we will take to Adopt-and-Shop animal shelter.

We will begin really implementing our ideas after some district work has been done this summer 2016, and in the fall students, parents, and staff will be involved in making permanent enhancements.

We will create a hummingbird garden in front of our bungalows using hummingbird-attracting native plants. Because the area is paved, our plants will be in containers. We will select native plants from our region that establish a continuous bloom throughout the year and acquire them from a local foundation that specializes in native plants. We will not use any pesticides or herbicides in our garden.

There will be a tree planting as well as a beautiful council circle garden being made. Many students should be participating in this event especially to clean up our school campus. There also will be a bake sale at our event so we can raise money to help fund our future projects.

Riverfield Roots & Shoots members have grown accustomed to gardening, composting, and helping take care of the campus environment. Before this season's planting began, we removed invasive, non-native plants and last year's dead growth from the fifteen beds we are tasked with maintaining. After cleaning out all the various garden beds and taking the unwanted plant material to our composting pile, we started planting. To make our gardens friendlier to native pollinators such as bees, moths and butterflies, we planted a variety of native plants throughout campus. Our flower beds serve several purposes: beauty for our visitors and families to enjoy, nectar sources for local butterflies and migratory Monarchs, and host plants for caterpillars. We are a certified Monarch WayStation and continue to plant a variety of milkweeds that are host plants for indigenous Black Swallowtails, Variegated Fritillaries, and Cloudless Sulphurs. Our nearly dozen species of nectar sources include Pentas, Perennial Lantanas, Mexican Sunflowers, Liatris, Ironweed and Joe-Pye Weed, Plus Phlox and Asters.
