Audubon Arkansas's TogetherGreen Projects

Bioblitz

In April 2011, over 80 participants from five Arkansas high schools surveyed forest, wetland, and glade areas at Audubon Arkansas's center in Little Rock. The event, hosted by Audubon Arkansas and the Little Rock School District, engaged students to learn field science basics about soil, water, wildlife, and habitat. Scientists with Audubon Arkansas and state agencies led monitoring activity and shared their field science expertise.

Talkin' Trash

Nobody likes it. There is trash in the water, trash on the road, trash in my neighborhood. We all think somebody should do something about it. But who?

The who is Dreykus Lowe. A 12th grader at Little Rock Central High School, Dreykus and his friends have been cleaning lakes and streams in Little Rock with help from Audubon Arkansas. They began producing educational videos about trash, pollution, and recycling—a project they call Talkin’ Trash.

Some of their videos urge people to stop making garbage in the first place by recycling paper, electronic waste, and other materials. Other videos remind people to stop littering and to pack their lunches in reusable containers.

Disney recognized their efforts and awarded their project second place in the international green initiative competition, Friends of Change. The March/April issue of Arkansas Wild featured Dreykus and his friends. The Talkin' Trash team is also highlighted in Audubon Adventures, an award-winning environmental education program used in classrooms and after-school programs across the nation.

The Talkin’ Trash crew plans to keep making videos. As they proudly declare, “Trash! It’s a dirty word, but somebody’s gotta talk about it!”
