We hope to complete this project by raising awareness, putting up nest boxes, pulling invasive species and planting native species.
Raise awareness of the problems that birds are facing in our community. Encourage community involvement through education and promoting specific steps they can take to help birds.
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.

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.
Snakes and forest ecosystem: Exploring knowledge of Indigenous communities of Nagarhole National Park
An activity to explore their skills at identifying snake species. An interaction consisting of many questions, in order to learn what they know. Then an exchange of knowledge by teaching them about proper identification and treatment for envenomations.
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.
The garden will give our amazing teachers a living classroom filled with real examples for their life-cycle, biodiversity and adaptation lessons. We will weed, lay weed cloth add free mulch from our local high school, then with the children's help add pollinator friendly plants that are local to our area. We would love to plant Milkweed to help the Monarch butterfly's, Dutchman's Pipe for the swallowtails and many other plants to help our hardworking pollinators.
Removal of invasive plants, except where to do so would disturb wildlife. Planting native plants, especially those used to slow the flow of water and replenish the water table. Inform our neighbors about protecting and stewarding wildlife, such as owls, reptiles (newts and snakes), foxes, and opossums. Work with our neighbors on pest controls that do not harm wildlife. Diminish irrigation. And make what was a blind corner a more visible one for drivers, cyclists, pedestrians and their pets.
The next step is to organize this information to a powerpoint and spread it to our social circle (like clubs, organizations, schools etc). The last step is to inform and try to sensitize some of the local food industries and persuade them to stop the use of palmoil in their products.
