Even though the price of native plants and trees are more expensive than usual, there are many existing companies that support people to plant the native plants and trees such as giving away the grant and seed for the volunteer. As a Merced resident, I found out the solution to achieve the native plants and trees by applying for the volunteer in order to grant money and seeds from other private supporters. Since those supporters offer everything for people to do so, why don’t people accept those offers? With that in mind, since the native plants and trees are highly expensive than usual, the support from free grants and seeds could be the solution for Merced people to restoring the native plants and trees in order to create a healthier environment. In September 2016, the State of California had allocated $1.2 billion …show more content…
At first, I was wondering what does it actually mean. The description is explaining the government offers grants to gardening projects, which can be beneficial to the community. In other words, the government is giving away the money to gardening the society where we live. Because planting is always bifacial to the environment. In fact, the government hands out $10 billion subsidies per month, which has many unclaimed subsidies which most people may qualify. Throughout the application, the volunteer must illustrate that his or her proposal will benefit the community, such as planting the native plants, then you have a chance to receive a free grant. Since it is a grant, you don’t have to payback, all is yours. However, the grant system from the government is operated by the (USDA), which has several opportunities including the garden grant which I am mentioning, but has more clearly explanation of how to qualify. Nevertheless, they have several opportunities as a result of several qualifications either, it’s depending on which one the volunteer wants to do

“Building family, building business, building future[O1] .” This is the New Salem town motto. Three senior nursing students assessed the rural community and have determined the motto is fitting. New Salem is only 20 miles from the larger, urban city of Bismarck, but that does not mean that New Salem has nothing to offer. New Salem has a grocery store, a school, several churches, and recreational activities available. New Salem also has several different attractions including a statue of world’s largest Holstein cow also known as “Salem Sue.” Diving deeper into New Salem, students explored the civic core, subsystems, perceptions, and priority needs of the community.
As a consequence of the ongoing California drought, cities across the state have been forced to pull water from alternate sources aside from their own. Shortages of rain and snowfall have prompted the people of California to extract water from reservoirs and basins that are getting increasingly close to running dry. Unfortunately, this issue is especially prevalent in Southern California where the population is quickly out growing the area’s fresh water supply. The general problem is that Southern California is lacking the fresh water supply necessary to sustain its inhabitants. The specific problem is that the Southern half of the state is not located near a secondary source of fresh water, unlike the northern part of the
The majority of these endangered species are beneficial to our environment. As a matter of a fact, the California redwood tree is extinct because of wood production. Consequently, the extinction of the California redwood tree allowed changes in the climate as well as changes in humidity, oxygen levels, air quality, and richness of the soil (68). Today, most animals in that area migrate to other places because their habitat is ruined because of that tree, and the loss of the tree contributed to global warming. Global warming can severely harm a local economy and that is why several economic resources are failing. Chadwick offers these environmental and economic reasons to persuade his reader to protect animal species.
With the funds I purchased nearly two hundred trees, a mixture of red-osier dogwood shrubs, sandbar willow, and beaked willow trees. In September, I assembled a team of a dozen volunteers and we planted, watered, and mulched the saplings along the creekbed in our community. Rejuvenation of the health of the riparian area will take place over time, since a significant amount of time has not yet passed, there is no visible change in the strength of the creekbank. New diversity in the Wolf Creek area and the strength that the trees will bring to stop soil erosion will increase as time passes and help stop the environmental decay of the riparian area that do affect communities heavily in the overall environmental health, wildlife habitat, and the natural filtration of chemicals before they enter water
For my local government report, I watched the Bakersfield City Council meeting that was held on June 7, 2017 online. The public officials that were in attendance were Mayor Karen Goh, Vice Mayor Bob Smith, and council members Willie Rivera, Andrae Gonzales, and Chris Parlier. This meeting was about the traffic incidents that have occurred and how public officials need to do everything possible to help. Even though it is up to the citizens to be safe, the public officials need to do everything possible to reduce this tragedy.

For example,The The United States needs to save the honey bee population by adding them to the endangered list under the Endangered Species Act implementing a ban on pesticides, creating programs to protect their habitat and establishing funding projects to protect bees on a national level. “Beekeeping Project Grants: Beekeepers are struggling to save the honey bees from a variety of threats. In 2006, a quarter of U.S. bee colonies were vanished by a strange disease called Colony Collapse Disorder. Moreover, the attack of Africanized bees and disease-spreading mites, the entire situation becomes a matter of shocking. This means, that To tackle this situation, different types of grants money provided for beekeepers. Such as, Federal Grants, State Grants, or Corporate Grants, Beekeeping project grants and so on. This is important because A large portion of American agriculture depends on honeybees. According PBS, honey bees pollinate one third of agricultural produce in the U.S. To tackle the above all situation, Federal & state governments, independent organization and some other corporations offers grant money. And this is why They try to raise honeybees and develop scientific research on honeybees to find ways to save them. The main purpose of such research is to keep our honey bees healthy, prevent colony collapse disorder and treatment of
In real estate, measurable elements are used. In Bakersfield the price of a house will vary depending on the square footage, lot size, condition of home, and the neighborhood area. Over the years of working in real estate, I have meet many people that moved to Bakersfield for affordable housing. But reflecting on the median house price in the United States, Bakersfield is surprisingly higher. The home price cost is represented by a median price. In Bakersfield the median home cost is $212,600 and the United States median home cost is $185,800 (Bakersfield, California Housing, 2017). Although, this is the current median home price cost, it will change through out the years because house prices inflate and deflate.
The geographic area of Oakland lies on the West Coast of the United States. Within the state of California, Oakland is on the east side of the San Francisco Bay with 19 miles of coastline to the west and flatland/hills to the east. Oakland occupies a total area of 78.0 square miles, land of 55.8 square miles and water of 22.2 square miles (U.S. Census Bureau, 2010). It is bordered by the city of Berkeley on the North, the city of San Leandro on the South and the city of Alameda on the west (Appendix A). The neighborhoods in Oakland include East, North and West Oakland, downtown Oakland, Central Business District, Oakland Hills and Lake Merritt. According to the city data, Oakland is the only
Just south of downtown San Jose, California is the secluded community of Santa Teresa bordered by valleys and nature trails of the Santa Teresa County Park, where families can enjoy recreational outdoor activities. Comprised mostly of individual neighborhoods the quality of life has been the main attraction for luring young families raising children to this valley. The community has a thriving social philosophy with a stable housing market and ranked #6 as the most livable place to live in San Jose, California.
. Tech firms already established in San Francisco, the diversity of the Bay Area’s population has been growing equally remarkable. People, who live and work in metropolitan area relies on several benefits such as economic, cultural, and social. Systematically the density of the population comes to the center housing and business offices can be built nearby the area, which could be closed to employee’s jobs in the urban development area. As a result, the construction cost increases. Mostly, when high-rise buildings replace urban sprawl housings, which are already in place and low-density buildings tend to increase the value of the land skyrockets. Simultaneously, the landowners, investors increase the land value, which leads to increased rental
In the United States, about 30 percent of land area belongs to the federal government, and state government owns about 10 percent of the national land area (U.S. DOI/BLM, 2014). These public lands provide economic and environmental benefits for the surrounding communities by providing natural resources for commodity production including timber, mining, and grazing, by offering natural amenities and recreational opportunities that attract tourists and migrants, and by protecting wildlife and their habitats, clean water, biodiversity, and general ecosystem function (Lewis et al., 2003; Cline et al., 2011). Thus, how public lands are managed may be one of the important factors of economic development in their surrounding local communities.
Creating a healthy community has been an ongoing idea for centuries. WEB DuBois was one of the numerous visionaries of the 19th century. His ideas contributed to 20th century goals of creating a healthier community. DuBois was an African-American activist during the beginning of the 20th century. He was born on February 23, 1968 in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. He excelled in his academics and was deemed a scholar when he became the first African-American to earn a Ph.D. from Harvard University. He went on to advocate for African-American rights through his various contributions as a spokesperson. He wrote extensively about his opinions. He is most likely known for his public criticism on Booker T. Washington’s “Atlanta Compromise”
