Wondering what Ecology Club has been up to? Look no further: all your info about the club is right here. The most common question about Ecology Club is, what exactly do they do? I asked a few students and here’s what they told me.

Ecology Club focuses on improving or protecting our ecosystem through local activities at the school and community events. They are the club responsible for making the Green School Proposal which judges how environmentally conscious our school is. Member of the club, Shayna Suit, elaborates on the topic by saying, “Right now we’re working on getting evergreen status with the Michigan Green School’s Program. This will be our 7th year achieving evergreen status, which is the highest status.” 

One way the club has helped the environment this year was through their recent planting of a garden by the swim doors. Along with the garden, the group has done various environmental cleanups to get rid of the waste in our ecosystem. “In September we did the Clinton Cleanup, while working on the school’s landscaping by making a new flower bed/garden by the swim area and cleaning up other areas of the campus,” says senior in the club, Ben Currie. 

The Ecology Club is a great benefit, according to its members, for anyone wanting to help volunteer in the local community and help make Chippewa Valley High School a better place. The club helps its members to gain a better understanding of the local ecosystem and how our actions can positively or negatively impact it. If you are interested in being a part of this great experience, the club meets on Thursdays after school in Mr. Bai’s room. They will be putting out more bird houses soon and will need help with that, so go sign up now; It’s not too late!
