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. What this means is that we recruit volunteers to come to our "work parties" to do environmental restoration work. We hold a couple 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.

Religious clubs or those without a financial account do not need to enter a Budget Authority. Also, it is OK for Coordinators or Assistant Coordinators to assume the Budget Authority role, and thus be listed twice.
