My group of students set up recycling boxes within the school for materials that could be reused for art projects. After months of collection, we would like to use these recycled materials to create beautiful cards, artwork, and placemats to inspire and encourage the senior citizens in our community. We have an aging population and many who do not have family or loved ones close by. Together our club decided to make videos to play on our school announcements explaining the importance of our project as a way to enlist the help from our entire school of 650 students with the project. We are partnering with a local church, nursing home, and Meals on Wheels with the intent to provide approx. 250 pieces of spring art made from 100% recycled materials to each organization to be distributed to their seniors with love from our school. The items will be picked up by members of the above organizations during our April club meeting. Invited to our meeting are multiple community members speaking on the importance of recycling and philanthropy within our homes, schools, communities, and globe.

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.

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.

Our project will visually allow our students and staff the opportunity to remember to stop and enjoy the beauty around us because life moves fast, and you never know what inspiration is just around the corner!
