Super Ranger Amanda and her Super Community Clean Up

Being an Earth Ranger doesn’t stop when your campaign ends. Being an Earth Ranger means being a steward for the earth every day. Super Ranger Amanda is a perfect example of an Earth Ranger who took action in her own community. Take a look at Amanda’s story.

Amanda is a 9-year-old who loves animals and being outdoors. She loves nature and does whatever she can to preserve and protect all living things. She does not like when people litter and don’t keep the environment clean. polar_bear_walking_on_ice

Amanda heard about Earth Rangers through her Dad who works with the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority who shares office space with Earth Rangers in Ontario. After hearing about the Bring Back the Wild Program, she knew that Earth Rangers was the perfect fit for her!

This year was a very exciting year for Amanda as she was instrumental in bringing Earth Rangers to her school in Manitoba. Her school enjoyed their presentation and many students signed up to be Earth Rangers as a result.

To show her love of nature and to involve other like-minded students at her school, Amanda, with the help of a friend, collected photos from students that they took over the summer of things in nature and compiled and published a hard cover book called, “The Beauty of Nature”. The book is now available for borrowing at her school’s library.

Amanda’s latest campaign for Earth Rangers is to help the Polar bear. She embarked on an email campaign to family and friends and committed to collecting 125 pounds of garbage around her community. She is well on her way to reaching that goal!

Recently, Amanda organized a Creek and Community Clean Up in her area that included classmates, parents, teachers and neighbours. She celebrated after with a hot dog BBQ in her yard where all the volunteers were presented with a Certificate of Appreciation from her local municipality. The Councillor for her area was in attendance and made the presentation. At the BBQ, she set up a table dedicated to nature and Earth Rangers where people could make donations to Earth Rangers, sign up for a nature club and talk about why it is important for everyone to do their part.

Amanda’s story is truly inspirational. She shows us that if you put your mind to it, you can make a real difference for your community. Amanda hopes to make the Creek and Community Clean Up an annual event and we wish her all the success in the world.
