Clean Pelican is a part of the Keep American Beautiful Network of Alliances for Geographic Education, whose mission it is to inspire and educate people to create a litter-free America. Clean Pelican is "working to create an maintain a clean, beautiful community where businesses and families want to stay, work and play". 

Bus Bench Survey

GGI partnered with Clean Pelican for two youth-centered projects. Youth gathered to participate in a survey of the bus benches in one tract of Baton Rouge took place. The students were collecting data on the visual appearance, presence of litter, and overall safety of the benches. Using their data, they then determined if the benches were in dissatisfactory, acceptable, or excellent condition. The students also presented their findings in front of local council members.

 

Map It Clean! at Episcopal Middle School

At Episcopal Middle School, the 7th-grade class learned about GIS software, the implications of litter, and data collection. Following, two in-class lessons, the students were tasked with mapping litter on their school's campus for a project called Map It Clean! They recorded where they found litter, the type of litter, and images of the litter. This data was then analyzed, and the students made Story Maps talking about their experience and findings throughout GGI and Clean Pelican's involvement.  Select students will be presenting their findings to Episcopal students at large and also to a public audience for GIS Day 2022. GIS Day is an international event held annually during the second week in November.

For the past several years Park Forest has worked with GGI to incorporate to offer summer camps, story map competitions, geo inquiry teacher professional development and now, spring of 2021 the launching of the watershed initiative. 

We here at Global Geospatial Solutions have partnered with LRCE to promote the implementation of ArcGIS Online in K-12 schools via a four day workshop. ArcGIS Online is a cloud-based geospatial platform that enables individuals to create and share maps, apps, and map services. Esri will include ArcGIS Online subscriptions in its educational site licenses and online application at no extra cost.

LSU's Coastal Roots Program

 

Louisiana State University's Coastal Roots program, headed by Dr. Pam Blanchard and Dr. Ed Bush, is a wonderful initiative to involve Louisiana youth in the restoration and preservation of their forests and coastline. Students from fifty schools across Louisiana are currently participating in the LSU Coastal Roots Program, as well as one school in San Pedro de la Paz (Concepcion), Chile. These students are planting a wide variety of trees and grasses while learning about environmental stewardship and ecology.
