Students who want to increase their knowledge and awareness of the many environmental problems and issues facing contemporary society will want to join the Environmental Club. Club members host and participate in Environmental Week. The highlight of the spring event is an Environmental Fair, featuring displays and projects on air and water pollution, the depletion of the rain forests, thermal energy, animal extinction and other topics. Also, students hear special presentations from various experts who work to protect the environment. Past speakers have been from Waste Management, Inc., Greenpeace, and the Environmental Protection Agency. Field trips are also part of the club’s activities, and there are no dues.
So, what exactly is the Environmental Club? It's an organization that tries its best to educate Reavis' students about the environment, mainly prairie restoration in the local forest preserves and to get them active for a better, brighter future.
