Clark College — The school's relatively new Environmental Club is already making a difference on campus, according to organizer Robert Bacon. Formed in December 2011, the group conducted a waste audit of the Culinary Department and found 85 percent of the trash was recyclable or compostable. Since then, it is helping set up a composting system and improve campus recycling. And it has hosted several ivy pulls to rid the campus of that invasive species. "We plan to continue this effort until there is no more ivy on campus," Bacon said. Learn more about the club on Facebook; search for Clark College Environmental Club.
