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.

This project would impact the students to clean up their surroundings and have knowledge on these rodenticides. We had Poison Free Malibu come to our school to have a lecture on this topic. We contacted the organization to make arrangements and held it in one of our school theaters.

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!

I have divided this project's action plan into six steps: 1. Responsibly dispose of roadside litter while also tracking litter-data using the Litterati app (www.litterati.org) 2. Create a poster including the collected litter-data, reasons to pick up litter and suggestions on how to keep the community clean 3. Publicly display poster at the town library, schools, senior center, etc. as a method to raise awareness about the problem 4. Seek town consent to distribute government cans along official walking trails 5. (Upon successful completion of Step 4.) Fundraise for government cans to be distributed along official walking trails 6. Publicly promote ways to keep Rehoboth Litter-Free (Example: Host an event at the public library, create a website and social media pages, host a public lecture about the project and its success)

In order to get the most out of the experience, we will make it into a fun game with prizes! We will split up into teams and spread out in different areas around our school, and meet back at a designated location afterwards. Those who collected the most trash will be awarded special prizes.

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.
