Ben Ring, Environmental Action Club officer and junior, said, “The Invasive Species Strike Team at Eagle Creek looks like a great volunteer opportunity. This involves locally identifying and removing invasive species in the environment.”

The club officers are contacting organizations like those at Eagle Creek in order to finalize a volunteering opportunity date for all club members. While this opportunity will be for club members only, in the future, they look to get many more students involved in a larger scale volunteering project that will help the environment.

“Volunteer opportunities are a great way to involve ourselves in the community and have a lasting impact on the environment,” Kian Robinson, club member and junior, said.

Robinson said he enjoys the annual White River Cleanup event which the club always attends, and has been pushing club officers to find more events that are similar.

Ring said, “Being aware of what’s going in the world is so important. Even small acts can add up to make big differences, and it’s important to remember that.”

Club sponsor Kara House said although she does not go to the events herself, the feedback students have given on such volunteering opportunities have always been positive.
