The Environmental Club is a volunteer-based organization that spends time helping out the world in any way possible; including local state park work days, Recyclemania and battery recycling initiatives.
The Environmental Club’s purpose is to increase environmental awareness among students, faculty, staff and the community.
The Environmental Club’s largest event is an annual Earth Day festival.
This celebration involves more than 25 campus and community organizations sponsoring their own sustainable activities.
This year’s “Earth Day Extravaganza” will take place on Thursday, April 18 in Shippensburg University’s academic quad from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
There will be many different activities and free giveaways at the event.
Campus dining will host a solar cookout, Shippensburg’s Thoughtful Farmer’s Market will have baby goats to pet, and a campus Animal Welfare group will be bringing dogs to play with.
The Environmental Club will be selling recycled crafts to raise money for the Appalachian Trail Museum — a society dedicated to the preservation of historically significant items.
Grace B. Luhrs Elementary is also getting involved by displaying recycled art and worm composting.
The week of April 15, 16 and 17, the Environmental Club will be also hosting an Earth Week Film Festival.
Featured movies include “A Crude Awakening,” “Processed People,” and “Life-5 Great Lakes.” All movies will play at 7 p.m. in the CUB Orndorff Theater.
