We will meet with experts to determine what monarch butterflies need, how to grow the plants inside our classrooms to transplant to the garden, and how to design the landscape for our garden. We will present our ideas to our school PTO and the community when we have chosen the best landscape design.

The students of Granite Oaks Middle School are working with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to restore wildlife and their habitats on campus. We will establish multiple vegetation zones such as woodland, butterfly garden, meadow, water conserving plants, and a relaxation/reading garden, all in which students can relate to their present curriculum and enjoy at their leisure. At this time, we are noting spaces that do not benefit wildlife in any way, and changing them to usable places to serve as homes for endangered species. In January, we will create a plan that we shall execute once the weather permits (March). Once finished we will continue to add new areas and maintain previously made vegetation zones.

The students have a designated area near a playground and plan to plant milkweed bushes for the butterflies. The students are researching which type of milkweed is best and the optimum planting months for the southern Arizona climate. Funds have been raised for the purchase of the soil and materials for a raised bed. The current time frame is to plant in May 2016.

Our Monarch Waystation will enhance the beauty of our school garden, attract more pollinators, and offer monarch butterflies a safe habitat in which to thrive. In addition, students will teach others in the community about the importance of helping the monarch butterfly by creating signage for the garden, handing out milkweed seed balls, and by hosting a monarch celebration.

We will be adding to the current native & drought-resistant planters. Having previously converted the gardens from an exclusive space, these gardens have become a center for learning where classes of all curricula come to read, explore, get resources, and even examine as scientists. Students are already asking questions about the varieties we planted, and we've led by example of how to conserve water during the California drought! Since the gardens are looking a little bit bare, we realize that we need add to the existing planters. In keeping with the curriculum, we want to get plantable materials for Project-Based Learning opportunities. Thank you for supporting us in this mission!

Together we will research plants that are habitats and/or food for local species. We will use these plants to create our interactive wildlife habitat. We will have observation stations with various supplies and materials for students to be able to conduct their research and collect data. For example, magnifying glasses, laminated insect and plant guides. Also, a fun log circle for observation and discussions.

We will spread the word and everyone will come to the beach on Saturday and we will hand out trash bags.

before the snow falls, take a walk through the park and forest, picking up litter, and arrange to get the larger dumped items out (like old car bodies!).

My school does not recycle. I know, horrible. So, my goal is to get it to recycle and for you to get yours to recycle as well!
