With the grant we will purchase birdfeeders and a trail cam to monitor feedings while we aren't able to observe. We will use the Cornell Lab Citizen Science Investigation to guide our work this year, but with the addition of the trail cam for nighttime observation. I believe citizen science is needed in our school, and is a powerful opportunity for students to connect nature with scientific research in a "real" way. We will also communicate with a group of students who live in the remote Siberian Yupik village of Savoonga, on St. Lawrence Island in Alaska, to learn how they use citizen science to learn about changes in their region. We plan to start with birds, but I hope students are able to draw connections between a healthy environment and productive habitats that support many types of life.

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.

My work has been bringing marine life awareness for 36 years and I hope through my sculpture to continue bringing respect and awareness.

The goal is to educate the community about the wildlife right outside their homes. In addition, I hope to raise awareness about the importance of wildlife in our ecosystems.
United States
We plan to achieve this goal by teaching children how fascinating animals are, and how integral they are to our farm and also our ecosystem. For example, chickens are great composters and also eat ticks and other pets in addition to providing delicious eggs. Our goats eat poison ivy and keep the weeds down and also provide milk and cheese. The wildlife on the farm exists in a delicate balance, with coyotes doing their part to keep rodent populations at bay, and the birds spreading seeds which result in our beautiful, lush green woods that surround the farm. Hiring animal rescue experts to come and give presentation is where we incur a lot of the cost for this educational session of summer camp on the farm.
United States
We run a summer camp program on our CSA farm, and during one session we will focus solely on animal wellness and sustainability education.
