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.

The Worker Bees will be recruiting Bee Helpers to show what they have learned from NY is a Great Place to Bee! If anyone wants to participate with a display, a craft, or an activity, the Worker Bees will help them. They will also run the pollination and honey-making game to explain how important our pollinators are and how hard they work, the Communication: Scent ID and Communication: Language of Dance stations, as well as the always popular native wildflower seed bonbon making! There will be the opportunity to make native bee houses from recycled materials, and possibly also hibernacula for bumble bees, and other activities to be updated as time gets closer!
United States
Worker Bees will host interactive activities and a display booth with information, including games about bee communication through smell (pheremones) and dance (honey bee dance), a honey making activity where participants pretend to be a busy bee gathering "nectar" (water) with their "proboscis" (eyedropper) and "pollen" (yellow pompoms) with their "pollen baskets" (little baskets) from specially designed "flowers." They will also be shown how to make wildflower seed bonbons to plant wherever some native wildflowers are needed to feed the bees. A half-hour presentation about the project will be given mid-day.

Our campaign is centered around nature play with a focus on conservation, wildlife preservation, and environmental awareness. Our school playground does not fully facilitate outdoor exploration and educational interactions with the environment. Our students brainstormed and recorded the ideas that they thought would help this campaign.
United States
We plan to plant a pollinator garden to support bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. We will also help to beautify our community while helping pollinators help us!
