5. Project description
Provide a short description of the project including strategies, regional challenges, aims and specific project activities.: 

As a part of Earth Day, April 22, 2014, we hosted artist Amy Livingstone at Portland Community College. Through her art displays, posters about endangered species, a lecture and film, and her sacred art mandala, she educated our students and staff about the fate of endangered species and their habitats and invited all to share blessings for the Earth. It was very moving to see participants slowly create designs in colored sand, flower petals, and seeds. At the end, she did a final ceremony and prayer and brushed the mandala into a bowl, which we gave to our organic gardening student club, who placed the blessed sand mixture into their plantings.
