Design and Do!
Steps to Design and Do Your Pollinator Project
Planning your project requires teamwork. As a team, complete your Project Planner to design a SMART project for your pollinator species - one that is Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Timely. If your team is helping more than one species, you'll need to coordinate on how the project will meet the needs of all of your pollinators. Once you have completed the Project Planner, submit it to Hero Headquarters using the form below.
Well designed projects are SMART - Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Timely. Your design should benefit the pollinator(s) you chose, the site, and the people who visit the site.
Planning for communications includes how you will tell others what you are doing (including getting permission!) and how you will document your work.
Budget & Fundraise
How much do you think your project is going to cost? Where can you get the materials you need? How can you raise the funds you'll need?
Do the Work!
When are you going to do your project? Do you need volunteers? How are you going to get everyone organized?
How are you going to make sure your project is taken care of after you are finished? What can you do to ensure your project helps your pollinator for a long time?
Check for Success
How will you know if your project is helping your pollinator species? What are some ways you could collect data from your project to measure your impact?
