LB 128 in Nebraska is proposing to eliminate the prairie dog population on landowner's property. We advocated for black footed ferrets to be released in Nebraska to help control the prairie dog population. We contacted the state senators and informed them about black footed ferrets.

Cowboy Compost, a private composting company, will run a compost pilot program for 2-3 weeks and then provide a report providing total waste diverted by the school and some insight as to what is found in the waste to show how well the children understand waste separation. The school will be taught about the science of composting and how to separate waste properly in the cafeteria. Cowboy Compost will pick up bins on a regular basis and take the waste to a large composting facility where it is sorted and then composted. Cowboy Compost will return compost to the school for use in our native and vegetable gardens. After a successful pilot program, we hope to start the program full time next school year.

We want to prepare our school's garden beds for spring planting and prune overgrowth in our butterfly garden. We also need to mulch around our trees and plant 4 new trees on campus. We will hold a garden work day on March 25 from 9-12.

Our wish for this project is to have it become a daily thing, that students look forward too. Once a week, we lead activities in the morning for our school's primary grades to keep them active. Eventually, we would like to lead these activities every day to make a greater impact. We would also like to get more things for the kids to do, so they don't become bored of the activities we lead.

My program would prepare children to enter a public school setting. Students in the program would receive a boost in academics. They would receive exposure to learning that they may not receive over the summer. Students will also have the opportunity to play, learn how to play with others, and learn how to hand conflict in the right way.

We felt very fortunate last year through the donation from your organization to start a beautification project in our community. It was a great success with much praise from the community. We would like to extend this project and add more planters for the Main Street and also be able to plant some fruit trees on the public playground.

The kids will decide what action they will take.

We believe that it is imperative for us to teach students about the importance of giving back to their community. We believe that students benefit from learning and being exposed to many different kinds of experiences and activities. It is through these activities that they find that their actions have a direct impact on themselves, their families, their community and the world. This year, students will be tasked with creating dog toys, cat toys, dog treats and bed that will be donated to our many local pet shelters. In addition, we will be holding a pet food drive with all items also donated to local shelters and rescue facilities.

We will apply for a booth as a non-profit at the Saturday Morning Market in downtown St. Petersburg. Our booth will feature boards made by the kids about Jane Goodall and Roots and Shoots. We will also do some fundraising for their current project...fish.

Our project will utilize unused land next to our school garden to plant native plants in our new pollinator garden. Our garden will both educate our community about plants native to colorado and provide habitat for species like birds, butterflies and bees who are critical to our environment.
