Environmental Club

We are students from a variety of majors committed to raising environmental awareness on campus and in the larger community. We emphasize environmental education by staging campus events and we volunteer for citizen-science projects including: invasive species removal, bat censusing, and water quality sampling. It’s great to be green at Siena.
