We have recycling drives, a yearly fundraiser, maintain a butterfly garden, take field trips after school, and help collect classroom and cafeteria recycling weekly. We meet on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month, after school from 3:15-4:30, in the library. We collect classroom recycling and transfer it to the recycling dumpster in the parking lot. We are looking for reliable, conscientious members to make a difference in the health of our planet.  Click here to access the Ecology Club website.
