We will meet at a local park (location TBD) and collect trash in bags to be removed. Basic safety guidelines will be discussed (as in items not to touch like syringes, broken glass and "personal" items). I'll provide a variety of bag sizes from contractor bags to plastic grocery bags for the littles, as well as kid-sized and adult-sized gloves.

We will have our students look for evidence of the wildlife already in the area. We will also try to do a numbers research on what and how many animals we see. Then we will set up the area to increase the number of animals. Such as bat and bluebird houses. Our story trail will be used to make citizens more aware of the environment around them. It would be to used to acquire the necessary goods/services to set up the area at our school. We will need lumber etc. to build the houses. We will use our HS departments to help build the houses. We will also need supplies for the story trail including permanent posts with weather safe book slots and books.
