Activities and Events

List the types of activities the organization will be likely to organize and participate in.

LEAD is a student-run environmental club on Western's campus where we focus on service learning projects. We hold work parties every Saturday morning typically from 10-12 pm at different locations on campus and in the community throughout Bellingham. We usually pull invasive plant species and do native tree/shrub/flower plantings too! It's super fun and we would love to have you be involved.
