Last year, our teachers had a very difficult time sourcing milkweed plants that each 2nd grade class needed to feed their live monarchs. With this garden bed, we hope to grow the important milkweed plant, along with other pollinator friendly plants, right on school grounds. Some seedlings have already been planted in temporary containers but need to be transplanted into a garden in April. We have plans for an inexpensive, yet sturdy raised wood bed and will also need to purchase the soil and compost for the bed, which we hope to have finished by mid-late April.

We plan to get dirty and closer to our earth by preserving the California natives, planting other drought-tolerant varieties, and making this part of our campus more aesthetically appealing or our community and neighbors who travel through.

The first step of the project is to trim all of the trees in the trail/park area and clear out all brush. The second step of the project is to install trash receptors in order to keep the area cleaner. The third step of the project is to install a drip irrigation system for the fourth step of the project, which is to plant Califonia native plants. The fifth step of the project is to hang owl boxes. The sixth step of the project is to install a bird bath to be a source of water for the species who will inhabit the area.

The garden will be planted in the spring and fall. After planting, we will work on signs for the garden.

Our campaign is in support of a little-known local Park District facility called Keay Nature Learning Center. The park is underutilized by our community. The environment is mostly healthy, but there are a number of invasive plant species which impact the native landscape. Working with the Park District, our group will work to eradicate native plant species without damaging the environment and to make the Nature Center more attractive to animals and people alike. One idea we have is to build and paint birdhouses to donate to Nature Center. These may help to attract and house a wider variety of birds, and they have the added benefit of being pleasing to people. We hope that the publicity from this effort will draw attention - and visitors - to the Nature Center.

We have chosen plants that are best suited for our campus. Students will plant in the garden and students will water the gardens once a week or as needed to ensure the plants survive. After the gardens are planted, students will monitor the plants for pollinators.

In our meadow, we will plant native plants which are used to our area's weather and rainfall. It's 50 feet long and about 33 feet wide, and will have a path to walk through the meadow. Then we will place signs to show the different plants and why the help, and signs teaching about the different pollinators, and why they are important.

Our project will research and share information on Monarch Butterflies and Hummingbirds, while creating a hands on environment so our fellow classmates and school community can learn about these amazing creatures, while enjoying native plants that help support their existence.
