Guys- if you have heard about the monarchs rapid decrease in population, i was wondering if anyone is interested in starting a project to plant pesticide free plants and milkweed fro the butterflies to eat and enjoy safely. Let me know if anyone has some feedback or ideas. I'm thinking about planting them outside my school's windows in manhattan where there isn't much place for butterflies to survive or maybe just plant them all around my backyard this summer.

Beams of blinding light flood through my open window, as birds chirp noisily in the distance. The neighbor’s dog yaps relentlessly. I hate that little yapper’s pathetic bark almost as much I loathe touching the subway rail. Don’t get me wrong, I like dogs, but this one is the devil in disguise.
Shuddering, I hastily slide my window shut, as a noise much more ferocious thunders from downstairs, vibrating the…Continue

In 2012-13,about HUNDREDS of trees were cut-down for construction in Allahabad,U.P for the kumbh fair.

i really really want to do a fund raiser for the environment yet i don't know what to do, i need help!!
When it comes to the environment, I love love love animals. Especially snakes, owls, bats, lizards, frogs and turtles. I work at a local park where I handle snakes and turtles and I absolutely love it. I have a lot of people that tell me that I'm nuts to like snakes. I have even been told that snakes deserve to be dead rather than alive. That comment completely floored me because snakes aren't here to hurt us, they're here to help us. And I wish more people realized how cool snakes are.…Continue
My group renovated the foundation of an old homesite in Cedar Falls Park, Chapel Hill. We dug out a pile of glass, rocks, and briars and turned a real eyesore into a historic site along a hiking trail. We found 10 one hundred year old glass marbles that kids used to play with who lived in the house, an old toy…Continue

Thanks to a bunch of boyscouts and other teen volunteers, Cedar Falls Park has its hiking trails marked appropriately. We pulled out 26 old posts and remarked the trails with Rhino marking system. It looks great. You can drive a Mack Truck over the sign posts, and they still stand straight and mighty. The posts were pulled out using a lever system and physics - an 8 foot post as a lever, 3 small cinder blocks as a fulcrum and a board to catch the lip of the post. These posts had been in…Continue
