The goals are to create a clean, protected and healthy local ecosystem for the amphibians to flourish. This includes: 1) Restoring a large pond in the middle of the community garden 2) Restoring the areas around the pond with the addition of frog-friendly landscaping/beautification of the garden 3) Translocation of 50 tadpoles- ten each from five local temporary or permanent ponds in different areas of the Bay Area (genetic variability) 4) Daily monitoring of tadpoles in various stages of development, tracking of young adults into breeding age 5) Connecting with other Amphibian programs to share data and research methodologies 6) Connecting to local school programs to introduce students to conservation biology and pond ecosystems 7) Ongoing data as population becomes stable 8) Collecting tadpoles for captive breeding program for the re-introduction into other ponds and areas deemed safe for amphibians 9) Long-term management of populations

My 4 previous third grade classes realized that seed balls made gardening easy, fun, and accessible. They learned that seed balls grow endangered wildflowers needed by pollinators, protect seeds from wind, birds, squirrels, and other critters, and has easy dispersal for more uniform coverage. They also discovered that “planting” the seed balls sometimes didn’t involve a shovel – sometimes, they could be tossed “guerrilla-style” while on hikes in our local park areas. In addition to all these benefits, this year’s class would like to partner up with a first grade class, their “Study Buddies,” and show them how to hand roll the seed balls, too, hopefully “planting the seed” of knowledge that even smaller hands than an 8-year old’s can have a BIG impact on their surrounding environment.

My project will educate people on single-use plastic impact and how to reduce/eliminate it. I will create a single-use plastic free challenge for the month of July for people to join to reduce their single-use plastic waste.

The fourth grade visual arts classrooms will create a large mosaic mural of a butterfly. We will be using crushed pebbles to create the design. The final product will hang in the butterfly garden for all to see.

This project will be a large outdoor butterfly mosaic. This mosaic will be created by approximately 250 fourth grade students at Superior Intermediate. We will use crushed pebbles to create our outdoor design. The large mosaic will be permanently installed in our butterfly garden area.

We will grow the flowering plants from seeds and watch them grow. The children will learn how to transfer the plants to a pot or put them directly into the soil, and wait for the butterflies and bees to appear.

The grant would be used to purchase native species of plants that attract butterflies, birds and more with a sense of home! In addition the grant will be used to purchase materials for bird feeders and seating areas. Any additional grant funds will be used for watering cans, materials to make recycled wind chimes, and paint for making motivational signs for children.

We are collecting plastics from campus trash and recycle bins that will be used for the art install. We will have our first showing on the summer solstice. It will stay on campus for a week and then will be displayed at community centers.
