Explore this example of an Action Project that your class/school can take, by Dr. E.W. Coffin School in the Brentwood Community of Calgary. Students of the school created signs with their own artwork and wording in order to communicate the importance of the special nature area around their school to others. With support from the Calgary Foundation Neighbour Grants, the school is looking to address the 26 existing signs that provide information on native plants, animals, and inform residents of the biodiversity in the area through an Indigenous lens. The second phase of the project involves the creation of a permanent Land Acknowledgement sign.
