Our project will achieve our dreams of a healthier environment by educating people at the Oakland Zoo. We will focus on the negative effects plastics have on our oceans and what we can change about our daily lives in order to lessen those effects. As well, we will (like we've done in the past) organize more beach cleanups periodically throughout the year to get people from all over the community to be more involved. Beach cleanups are a great way of educating the public about plastic pollution and also gives people a chance to help out. These cleanups bring everyone together to make our world a better place! We have also created a fun station for our Teen Wild Guides to volunteer every weekend! We have teen volunteers who walk around the entire zoo and pick up trash that people leave behind. Trash can be very dangerous for the animals at our zoo and we don't want any of it to find its way into any of the exhibits. We collect a huge bag of trash every time we do this station! Not only does this make the zoo a more beautiful and natural environment, it also shows the visitors what they can do to help maintain the zoo's beauty and fun!

Our project will improve habitat for bats by providing them with safe shelter to raise young and rest during the day. We will involve younger students from our school (Kindergarteners and fourth graders) in the process of building four bat boxes so they understand that bats are an important part of our ecosystem. We will place the bat boxes on our school campus and in other appropriate sites throughout Summit County, UT with interpretive signage. Finally, we will produce an informative video to share with our school community at an assembly. Our interpretive signs will also include links to the video so that the public in our area can learn about bats and how to help them.

My students and I have watch a TED talk on the blight that monarchs are facing in the near future. We are sincerely concern that if we don't take action now, that there will not be a future for these insects. How sad the world would be if we as a community can not and would do a little to take part in the whole scheme of saving the future of monarchs. To do our part to save monarchs, we have decided to plant milkweeds for students attending Cabrillo High. The goal is for each student to plant three dixie cup full of milkweed seeds. Once the seed germinates, students will donate one back to our school garden and take two home. Of the two that is taken home, students are to give one away to a neighbor, friend, staff and/or teacher. With regards to the school garden, students will help to build and maintain the milkweed garden at school so that the whole student body can enjoy nature. The school garden also serve another purpose because it allows for me to be able to safeguard and collect milkweed seeds for subsequent years for I intend to have carry on this project for years to come.

I would like to begin replanting the trees that have been destroyed due to hurricane Michael. This would not only be for Mother Earth but for the wildlife who have lost their homes as a result of this unfortunate incident. I would also like to aid in cleaning up all of the trash and debris that has become a part of the everyday norm around here.

We have collected native milkweed seeds and will plant them indoors. When the weather permits, we will transfer seedlings to locations throughout our community to create a place for migratory Monarchs to lay eggs and to provide the necessary food for the caterpillars. We will raise Monarchs from eggs and caterpillars and release them when they emerge from the chrysalis and are ready to fly. We will work to educate others about the declining Monarch population and explain how they can help to save the Monarch.
