In this project, you will be asked to actually measure the amount of waste that your household generates in a week's time (identifying single-use plastic or not) and devise creative ways in which the can reduce, reuse and/or recycle to take an active role in their environment.

Scottsdale Environmental Advisory Commission

Did you know?
Urban trees and biodiversity (e.g., other plants, animals, insects) are buffers that help make our city a cooler and more pleasant place to live. Trees provide shade, reduce heat, help absorb air pollution, and retain water after floods. Together with insects, birds, and mammals, trees create urban ecosystems adaptable to environmental changes.

Trees make our city more livable and enjoyable!
As a leader in the sustainable management of our public urban forest, the city of Scottsdale has completed an inventory of trees on city properties.

To assess the extent of tree cover and biodiversity more fully, the City is looking for citizens who are interested in participating in a citizen science-based tree/biodiversity project in their neighborhoods and on their properties.
