  20. 20. Community Involvement<br />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.<br />
  21. 21. Future events<br />Buttonwood Park Zoo has two Asian Elephants named Ruth and Emily. <br />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.<br />
  22. 22. Sustainability<br />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.<br />When adding to our float we reused previously recycled materials and only bought inexpensive spray paint to add a few finishing touches.<br />
  23. 23. Sustainability<br />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.<br />Our float only cost us around $5 per member!<br />
