What We Do

The EAC is a very active club and helps with many efforts on campus, including the food pantry when needed. We conduct fundraisers that educate and promote earth-friendly behaviors, such as the sale of organic, shade-grown, fair-trade, carbon-free coffee, and we donate the proceeds earned through our efforts to environmental organizations chosen each semester by the club members, such as the Sea Turtle Conservancy through whom we adopted a sea turtle named "Claire"! Our outreach is local, national, and international.

  • Earthfest celebration of Earth Day (spring)
