St. Vincent and the Grenadines

It is important to remember that we as humans are part of the environment. With over 6 billion of us on Earth, our combine actions also have a big impact on the environment. However, at least we are aware of that impact. We can do things as individuals and we can find ways to work together to lessen the detrimental impacts of billions of people. Environmental science fair project ideas explore such topics as air quality, water quality, the effects of climate change, and many others.

Most of all, this project consists in the most important things like rehabilitating the trail.

The 4.3mile long trail will be clear using cutlasses. Several big trees, which have fallen and are blocking the original path of the trail on the ridge, will be remove. In areas which are steep and hazardous stairs will be re-establish.

Vetiver grass and trees will be plant in two critical areas where landslides are very close to the trail; so to prevent further soil erosion and strengthen the safety of the trail.  Select trees will be plant along the trail to counter soil erosion and to enhance biodiversity.

Three (3) look out spots for visitors will be establish. The midway point of the trail will be re-establish and extend, for it to be suitable for bigger groups to stop and rest on the way to the summit. 15 information signs will be set up with: guidelines how to hike the trail, disclaimers and information on climate change, biodiversity and the history of the volcano.

However, this is a project that is undertaken to collaborate with the environment. Richmond Vale Academy is the leader of this, providing tools for development.
