My project will inform the public about the negative environmental impacts of firearms and ammunition manufacturers. In order to do so, data will be collected from the ECHO EPA Database and will be analyzed in many different ways.

We started by learning about how our vast populations of people have polluted the oceans. In the process we learned about how all life on earth is dependent on our oceans being healthy and in balance. The focus quickly went to the impact of plastics, looking at waste of plastic bags and straws. Through the Students Rebuild project, each "sea creature" we created was result in $2 being donated to protecting and cleaning our oceans. We made hundreds of mostly origami sea creatures, including whales, angel fish, sea anemones, clam shells, and jelly fish.

At bare minimum, the project will prove successful if local youth gain service-learning hours for installing the conservation garden in ways that spark meaningful prior Green School PTSA memorializing conversation and reflection. This success indicator is very reachable being that The Natural Roots Project’s (NRP’s) partner-organization, The Empowerment Center of Maryland, Inc, has agreed to both: a) host youth-preparatory sessions at their facility, and b) provide the 501c3 criteria necessary to grant service-learning credit. Furthermore, many Cherry Hill plot holders are elderly retirees, accustomed to seeing mainly food planted at their location. Thus, the conservation garden is likely to spark much curiosity, inquiry and conversation. The process of garden installation and community response will be documented via a youth coordinated video montage and short feedback surveys respectively.

Several badges or state projects grow plants with youth that after the plant is done have no further use. With this project the students can use these plants as a service learning project plus provide fresh produce to the shelters. In urban areas their is no place to grow out the plants. With our raise beds we have the space.

A group of students researched potential causes of red tide and were shocked to discover that runoff from fertilizers might contribute to increased and more severe red tides, a naturally occurring phenomena. They decided to create a YouTube video to educate other students as well as present to our second graders.

Survey our school on our use of plastic bottles across campus. Look at what kind of recycling centers and steps we are taking to reduce our impact on our carbon footprint and the ocean. Research marketing techniques to convey the message of the effect of plastic. Put the message on our water bottles and the spread awareness with these bottles.
