  • Community Involvement
    To incorporate the community with our promotion and education of endangered Asian Elephants we attended Buttonwood Park’s “Cabin Fever Week” and worked with young children from local areas with arts and crafts.
    As we worked with the community we also promoted the `Earth Eve Parade to all the parents at the Zoo and asked them to join us.
  • 20. Community Involvement
    Although we couldn’t make elephants with our arts and crafts, we were able to help the kids make a sheep. Our community partner appreciated all of our help and was happy the kids could make such great memories at the zoo.
  • 21. Future events
    Buttonwood Park Zoo has two Asian Elephants named Ruth and Emily.
    In order to keep Ruth, Emily, and their families on this planet longer, Buttonwood Park Zoo holds an all day event called Elephant Awareness Day to educate the entire community about these lovely animals.
  • 22. Sustainability
    The Zoo had previously made most of our float for their past Elephant Awareness Days and they allowed us to fix up what they had and add on to it.
    When adding to our float we reused previously recycled materials and only bought inexpensive spray paint to add a few finishing touches.
  • 23. Sustainability
    As a result of our recycled goods and reusing what the zoo had previously made, our float resulted in an almost life-size version of an elephant.
    Our float only cost us around $5 per member!
  • 24. Earth eve parade!
    We represented Buttonwood Park Zoo and….

    Our team has faced many trust issues since the start of this project. Although many of us had outside agendas, we all seemed to work it out and make this project work.
    Our team is very good at creating something out of nothing and our creativity is what brought us together as a team.
