We will make dog and cat toys, and raise money to benefit the Humane Society through a lemonade stand/bake sale after school.

Our group sold lemonade at a stand at the local library to earn $60 to go toward an apple tree. The tree nursery donated the remaining $40 when they sold us the $100 tree for the amount we earned. Students then dug the hole and planted the 6 foot tall tree. We eagerly await spring to be sure our tree made it through the Colorado winter.

We will contact a facility for the elderly in our community for permission to bring a project to them. We will create warm blankets and pillows. Pen pal letters will be written and placed with every product made. Then we will deliver it. Last, we will continue to write and make a connection with a new member of our community.

First, in order to raise awareness we will prepare informational posters around the school so students are informed about the search engine. This poster will include fun facts about the search engine as well as a tutorial about how to make it your default browser. Once these posters are hung around the school we will visit classrooms in school to give a brief presentation about the search engine and teach students how to install the browser as their default.

In order to achieve our goals we will organise a two hour community clean up of the road driving up to our school. This will include us walking over this road with the students and collecting any trash along the road into plastic trash bags to be recycled afterwards.

Do you love nature? Do you want to learn more about local plant, animal and insect species? Do you want to learn about volunteer opportunities related to the natural environment? Tuleyome is teaming up with the University of California's extension program and the Woodland Public Library to teach members of the public how to become Certified California Naturalists! No advanced degrees or previous naturalist experience is required. Founded in 2002, Tuleyome is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit conservation organization based in Woodland, CA. Our mission reads: “Tuleyome engages in advocacy and active stewardship with diverse communities to conserve, enhance, restore, and enjoy the lands in the region.” One of the ways we will be implementing our mission will be by offering a Certified California Naturalists course to the public. We are working in partnership with the University of California (UC) and the Woodland Library to present the classes. The UC has already vetted our teaching staff and supplied us with a basic curriculum which we augmented to reflect the region around the new Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument. ((It was Tuleyome who spearheaded the campaign that lead to the monument’s proclamation under President Obama in July of 2015.)) We now seek to train members of the public as naturalists so they can volunteer as docents and educators in the Berryessa Snow Mountain region! The California Naturalist Program allows Californians to help protect and preserve our unique and diverse wildlife, habitats, river, lakes and coastal resources, wild and urban alike. By signing up for the course with Tuleyome, you also become a CERE Guardian -- an active member of the public dedicated to Conserving, Enhancing, Restoring and Enjoying our regional public lands and open spaces -- and will receive a special pin at the completion of the course.

IN front of my school we have a 20 foot by 30 foot piece of grass that is not being used for anything. We also have a fig tree and a plum tree with some bulbs that could use some company. I want my school to be attractive to when parents come in and see how much pride we take in the outside appearance and the community around. There are a lot of urban farmers also in the neighborhood and I would like to purchase native bee food plants to attract more bees and help both ours and their plants.
