We will trace our water sources in our area including going on a field trip as described: We could follow the water from Windsor Lake to the pumps at Diamond Valley Ballfields. The water leaves the lake and travels thru a set of meters then travels over catch grates and down to Chimney Park. There it is goes thru a diversion box where some of the water stays at and Eastman and the rest goes under a few houses and a few more diversion boxes where it stops at Diamond Pond where it can be pumped out to water the fields or returned to the ditch and back to the Poudre River. This will help our students to have a better understanding about the infrastruction of our water system. We will also have speakers that help them to better understand the current issue of building more storage for our water to keep it here in our area. They will also have the chance to be part of the Weld County Well Watch program that tests temperature, nitrates, disolved oxygen level, depth and pH. This knowledge will help them to decide how we want to inform our community on the effects of our water shortages. We ultimately want our students to have an overall awareness of our local water and their impact on their enviornment through their water usage and protecting our water. Through learning about the well, the water pump, and having access to the Poudre River, students will gain a better understanding and be able to share with our student body and the community the importance of water in our world.
I will initially start a community recycling project at kuruwitu conservation Welfare Association neighbourhoods. I am a volunteer at kuruwitu and will be running the recycling project. I am studying permaculture. I hope to use green waste and paper waste as tools in enriching the soil. The study of Permaculture is to rebuild the land. I aim for zero to landfill in my recycling project.
1. Document the wildlife of Reserva Natural Laguna Blanca, observing flora and fauna so that we know what we are protecting and can develop conservation management plans for entire ecosystems. 2. Provide opportunities for local children to engage with nature and experience its wonder, while learning valuable life skills and scientific processes. 3. To motivate the people of Paraguay to take part in the conservation of their countryside through interactive family-oriented games and exhibits for eco-tourists.
We will bring together more than 15 Roots & Shoots groups in Los Angeles and they will display their projects to the public at the Los Angeles Environmental Education Fair at the LA Arboretum.
We record the conditions of the river not only as a means to achieve a better understanding, but for aesthetic reasons as well. Our concern for Beijing’s natural resources stems from a genuine love of nature as well as a pragmatic realization that such resources are necessary for Beijing to thrive. www.greensos.cn/
Biomimicry + Bioneers Family time to do a little nature walk to observe wetlands and record observations with iNaturalist.
Our project will be scheduled through the Bioneers Conference. We will be doing a short BioBlitz to make observations of plans and animals around the South Galina Creek. We will us smart phones and work with iNaturalist to post our observations.
The project is already set up and the final testing is this summer, After this we will start with massive promotion all over Qatar. Next school year another roof garden will be set up in our school to cover the full roof top.
Just placed an order for 12 Butterfly plants that will be planted around our common area where I live. The bare root Butterfly plants arrived and shared with a friend. My 6 plants have now been planted in large pots in my back yard and are doing great. They will be transplanted this fall after the extreme Arizona summer heat.
New black tubing and drip nozzles will be purchased and connected to the school's existing ground water drip system by student volunteers. Water irrigation will be tied into the school's timed water system with the black tubing and drip nozzles by the school's facility department or volunteers as soon as possible. Next school year, our Roots & Shoots group will help maintain the Monarch Waystation and in the future hopefully be able to tag the Monarch's on their migration.
We will aerate the soil surrounding the redwood trees, fertilize with iron and NPK, plant woodland shrubs and trees around the redwoods, add mulch, and install misters to maintain humidity.
