  1. Our Service Learning Experience-Fall 2011 By: Brittany Jensen And Kelly Miller

  2. Working On the Eco-trail • Pulled up an excessive amount of Knot-weed on the outskirts of the trail by the creek. • Raked the path • Moved debris to the compost pile

  3. BEFORE!

  4. AFTER!

  5. Eco-Trail Impact on Campus Community • Allows students to escape the hectic life of college to enjoy nature. • Our class helped to make the trail a more appealing and tranquil place to escape to. • Picking up litter on the trail provides a more eco-friendly environment for both humans and wildlife.

  6. Problems Encountered on Eco-Trail Vandalism Littering

  7. HECK Weatherization Project • Assist homeowners in the downtown Buffalo area with energy conservation measures • Things we helped out with were weather stripping, caulking, and hot water pipe and heater insulations. • We worked with a experienced craftsman (Don) who helped us complete required tasks for each house. • Completed 4 houses

  8. What we learned from HECK? • There is an extensive amount of people who can’t afford their heating bill each month in the urban area. • Therefore they look for different ways to heat their home or they go without any heat.

  9. Pelion Garden • Weeded • Trimmed bushes • Covered the grass by the curb with cardboard and then dirt. • Mulched • Used a pick axe.

  10. Raking mulch! Dumping mulch!

  11. Working the Pickaxe

  12. Pelion Garden BEFORE

  13. Pelion Garden AFTER

  14. The Garden by the Soup Kitchen • Weeded • Disassembled the poles and unknotted the strings and vines • Picked fresh vegetables • Prepped garden for winter • Put down mulch

  15. Untangling string and vines! Brussel Sprout stalk!

  16. Community Gardens Impact • Provide the community with vegetables that are inexpensive. • Healthy eating alternatives • Encourage people to eat organic foods • The gardens allow people to become active outside.

  17. Campus Sustainability • One way to encourage campus sustainability is to educate Daemen students about how to go green and what impact we have on the environment. The electronic drop-off at the Environmental Summit.

  18. Future “Green” Ideas • We could plant fruits and vegetables near the trail so Wick could use them for meals. • Or we could donate the grown products to a good cause so someone in need could use them.
